Gluten Free Chicken Kievs

After discovering Hale and Hearty's gluten free breadcrumbs we decided to give chicken kievs a go and I'm so glad that we did! If you love breaded foods, you have got to try these delicious gluten free breadcrumbs, they're so easy to work with and they taste and smell divine!

I'm not easily pleased when it comes to food, I only want to eat the best, this is a coeliac disease diet product that should be mainstream, not limited to the free from aisle.

Now about those Gluten Free Chicken Kievs....

 Serves 2


2 Chicken Breasts
1 Pack of Hale and Hearty Gluten Free Breadcrumbs
2 Medium to Large Eggs
Corn Flour
40g Butter
3 Garlic Cloves
1 Teaspoon Parsley


If you don't want to make your own garlic butter you can use pre-made, skip the first 4 steps in this case.

  1. Put butter into a dish and mash with a fork so it becomes soft.
  2. Peel and mince the garlic cloves into the butter.
  3. Add the parsley.
  4. Stir the garlic and parsley into the butter so it is evenly distributed.
  5.  Chill in the fridge.
  6. Preheat the oven to 190C
  7. Skin the chicken breasts if necessary and wash if preferred.
  8. Take a sharp knife and cut into the side of the chicken breast top to bottom to make a pocket, leaving a small piece at either end in tact.
  9. Cut as deep as you can without going through to the other side.
  10. Spoon the garlic butter into each of the chicken breasts and push the two sides of the pocket closed.
  11. Put into the fridge.
  12. Place corn flour into a container making sure that the bottom of the container is covered.
  13. Place the eggs into a separate container and beat until the yolks and whites are mixed.
  14. In another container, place the Hale and Hearty breadcrumbs.
  15. Take the chicken from the fridge and place into the corn flour, roll the chicken breast around making sure that it is entirely covered in corn flour.
  16. The place the floured chicken into the egg and do the same. Making sure that the whole chicken breast is covered.
  17. Next place the egged chicken breast into the breadcrumbs and carefully roll it around until it is fully covered in breadcrumbs.
  18. Place the same chicken breast back into the egg and cover, then back into the breadcrumbs.
  19. Depending on how thick you want the breaded coating to be, repeat this process until satisfied.
  20. Repeat steps 14 - 18 for the other chicken breast.
  21. Place chicken kievs into a baking tray and pop into the oven.
  22. Depending on the size you will need 30 - 40 minutes cooking time.
  23. If unsure whether or not they are cooked through, get a sharp knife and slice into the chicken at the top. If the juices run clear, you have fully cooked gluten free chicken kievs!
The breaded coating keeps the chicken lovely and moist which is a great combination with the crunchy breadcrumb coating. This is a very filling meal, so if you have a light appetite consider sharing a kiev between two.
