This retro favourite that's making a big comeback. But don't fall into the trap of buying readymade. Making your own is a world away, succulent chicken crisped to perfection and oozing garlic butter.

Ingredients
 

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts, (4 x 175g)
  • 200 g soft salted butter
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 200 g wild garlic, finely chopped
  • ground pepper
  • 6 tbsp cornflour
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 200 g dried Japanese breadcrumbs (Panko)

Instructions
 

  • With a sharp knife, make a small incision through the thicker end of the breast and carefully run the knife through so you end up with a pocket effect. Try to make sure you don't pierce the meat. Repeat with the other three.
  • Mix the butter, cornflour, wild garlic, and pepper together well.
  • Place the butter into a piping bag and snip off the end.
  • Pipe the butter into the pocket you have just created then, repeat with the other three breasts. Secure the opening with a cocktail stick if needed.
  • Next, dust each breast in cornflour, dip in beaten egg and finally coat in panko breadcrumbs, making sure the hole you made is coated really well.
  • Then this is the important bit, chill well until the butter is very hard.
  • You can cook the kievs either by deep-frying them or oven cooking. I prefer to deep fry them.

To deep fry

  • Fill a deep pan one-third full with vegetable oil and heat to 175-180C. When ready to cook, carefully place the kievs into the hot oil and cook until light brown, crispy and cooked through. This will take about 10-12 minutes.

To oven cook

  • To cook in the oven, preheat the oven to 180C. First, shallow fry the kievs for 2 to 3 minutes, and then place in the oven, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once cooked, remove the cocktail stick and serve hot with crinkle-cut chips.
