I'm in a great mood today... strangely smiley Diane, but still fancied something tasty and comforting and grain free, primal Chicken Kiev has been on my mind for a while...
I feel like a fraud sometimes for posting such simple recipes... but you know what? I think we all need ideas so we don't get stuck in a salad rut, and if they're simple and delicious it's so much better!
- Chicken fillet
- Butter (if you're even considering using margarine or low fat dairy spread get off my blog right now!)
- fresh parsley
- almond flour
- seed mix (I used sunflower and sesame)
- coconut milk/beaten egg
Using a sharp knife, butterfly your chicken breast or just slice into the top of the fillet to create a pocket for the garlic butter.
Mince a clove of garlic and mash into a generous knob of butter & chopped parsley.
Press garlic butter into the pocket in the chicken.
Next dip the chicken into coconut milk or beaten egg, coat in almond flour, and dip into the milk/egg again, before pressing well into the seeds until well coated.
Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven until cooked through and golden brown.
Serve with a salad or steamed vegetables. I had this with cauliflower/celeriac mash and steamed broccoli. The best thing about this dinner is that it's uses the simplest natural ingredients and still manages to taste incredible... there's a lesson in there for sure!
