Paleo Chicken Kiev, Gluten-Free, Low Carb

Please share this post.

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.
