Chicken Kiev

Chicken Kiev is a dish that you will not mind eating everyday. This dish is tasty, inexpensive and easy to make. In fact, my kids love my version of this famous chicken dish that is invented by a Russian chef. In the early 1800s, a Russian chef created the first chicken Kiev. By the way, Kiev is the capital of Ukraine. This dish was called Chicken Kiev for marketing purpose to target the Russians restaurants across America and Europe.
