Chicken Kiev is one of those mythical foods, seldom
served at home, or anywhere. We really loved this
alternative to the traditional, Paleo Chicken Kiev is also
Gluten-Free & Low Carb. Swapping out coconut
flour for AP wheat & crushed walnuts for panko, are the only
real changes. Still this was a pretty much”fly by the seat of
my pants”cooking which I love. Measuring my ingredients
didn’t work: I needed a bit more this, a bit less of that. Look
at the pictures & get the idea. Play, cook, have fun!
This was only 1 chicken breast which made an ample dinner
for the two of us. The best compliment, was when my
husband Scott asked if I would make it again soon.
