A note about serious food allergies

In Soviet Russia, chicken Kievs you! OK, we've gotten that out of our system. But don't let the dumb old jokes distract you: This chicken has serious flavor. It's breaded in panko, fried, and topped with a compound butter that melts even the coldest Siberian taste buds. Crisp, tender green beans round out this how-do-you-say-delightful-in-Russian meal that will leave you too satisfied and full to make the old corny jokes.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 3 Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince parsley. Finely mince garlic. Trim ends off green beans. Pat chicken breasts dry.

  • Step 2 - Make Butter and Pound Chicken

    Make Butter and Pound Chicken

    In a mixing bowl, combine butter, half the parsley (reserve remaining for breading), and garlic (to taste). Form butter mixture into two disks, 1" in diameter. Set aside. On a separate cutting board, cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a heavy object into an even ⅓" thickness. Feel free to use a disposable gallon-size bag instead of wrap. Season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 3 - Roast the Green Beans

    Roast the Green Beans

    Place green beans on prepared baking sheet. Toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until beans are tender but still crisp, 11-15 minutes. While green beans cook, bread chicken.

  • Step 4 - Bread the Chicken

    Bread the Chicken

    Combine flour and ¼ cup water in another mixing bowl until a loose batter forms. Combine panko and remaining parsley in another mixing bowl. Heat canola oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Dredge a chicken breast in flour mixture, then place in panko, pressing to adhere. Repeat with second chicken breast.

  • Step 5 - Fry Chicken and Finish Dish

    Fry Chicken and Finish Dish

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of panko to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. Carefully, add chicken to hot oil and flip every 3-5 minutes until golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-14 minutes. Remove chicken to towel-lined plate. Season with ¼ tsp. salt. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing butter disk on chicken. Bon appétit!
