Yields2 Servings
Prep Time30 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time1 hr

 2 chicken breasts
 6 slices of prosciutto
 Vegetable oil for shallow frying
Butter Filling
 100g of salted butter
 3 finely chopped garlic cloves
 2-3 teaspoons of bacon jam (see my recipe in Condiments and Snacks). Alternatively fry up some bacon, onions and your fave seasoning and blitz!
 A little bit (about 1-2 teaspoons) of blue cheese. Use cheddar if blue cheese is not for you
 Salt and Pepper
Batter
 2 Eggs
 Flour for batter
 Bread crumbs

Making butter filling:
1

For your filling mix up grated butter (helps to soften it), crushed garlic, bacon jam (you can find it here under snacks and condiments), you also can just fry up onions and bacon with fave seasonings and blitz it instead, and blue cheese. Mash up and squeeze with your hands. Roll up in a sausage shape and put in the freezer. You just want it to start getting firm, so you can put in inside. 5-10 min is enough.

Kievs:
2

Prep your chicken breasts. Trip the skinny flappy bits. Shave off with the knife the thickest past of the breast. you want it more or less even thickness for even cooking.

Slice from one side creating a pocket, the opening should be smaller then the area cut, going all the way to the edges without piercing the meat. I will shortly put a HOW TO video.

3

Once butter is firm, but pliable, stuff your breast with it generously all the way inside. If any left rub your chix breasts with the butter mix on the outside

4

Stop for couple sips of wine.

5

Wrap prosciutto firmly around your chicken. I use 3 slices per breast. You don't want it to open while cooking.

6

Grill chicken breasts in a hot pan on both sides first to crisp up and seal prosciutto.

7

Cool a bit.

Then a do a dip in flour, then egg mix, then crumbs. Shallow fry again couple min on each side.

8

Put on the wire rack and into preheated oven At 180C for 20 minutes.

9

Serve definitely with creamy mashed potatoes and a glass of chardonnay.

Enjoy!!
