There are a lot of topical Russian references we could make right here, but food is about bringing people together, not pushing them apart. (And anyway, Kiev is in Ukraine.) We won't make cheesy Russian jokes; all we'll do is mention how delicious this fried chicken is, how gorgeously the goat cheese butter coats every crevice of said fried chicken with delight. In Soviet Russia, chicken goat cheese butters you! Ok, we lied about the cheesy Russian jokes.

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces, if necessary.
In a mixing bowl, combine butter and goat cheese. Set aside.
Pat chicken breasts dry.
Pound the Chicken
On a separate cutting board, cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a heavy object into an even ⅓" thickness. If available, place chicken in a disposable gallon-size freezer bag for pounding. Gallon bags allow for easier cleanup.
Season chicken on both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Bread the Chicken
Combine flour and ¼ cup water in another mixing bowl until a loose batter forms.
Place panko in another mixing bowl.
Heat canola oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
While oil heats, dredge a chicken breast in flour mixture, then place in panko, pressing to adhere. Repeat with second chicken breast.
Cook the Broccoli
Place broccoli and garlic on prepared baking sheet and 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 browned and fork-tender, 14-16 minutes.
While broccoli roasts, fry chicken.
Fry the Chicken
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 cook until golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side.
Remove chicken to towel-lined plate. Season with ¼ tsp. salt.
