Today folks we are making our very own homemade
chicken kiev my mind is telling me no, hello folks it is barry here welcome to my virgin
kitchen I am one of your self taught hosts here and today I am overcoming something that
I have always wanted to do on the channel I have done over one thousand videos now and
I have always wanted to make my own homemade chicken kiev but something has put me off
of it, but today I decided to break my duck and it is a lot easier than you think so I
really hope by you watching this video if you think oh I may try it that you give it
a go, honestly if you take your time, you are going to love it. Before we start todays shoutout is coming
from our facebook page so remember to follow us on all social media for behind the scenes
bits, sneaky recipes and giveaways actually Alan Gralak who has just been the latest person
to like the facebook page, there we go, thanks for that, here we go lets get on and do this
you are going to love it first thing we do is make some room temperature butter well
actually it was out the fridge but I blasted it in the microwave for 5 seconds to soften
it up a little, then we add in four garlic cloves, now some of you may be like uh I am
a vampire can I use slightly less garlic yes you can, but remember this is a kiev, trust
me your house your hands your breath everything will smell of garlic afterwards into that
bowl you are also going to add some freshly chopped parsley the juice of half a lemon
and also give it a good season with pepper and salt then you just want to beat it all
together to form a nice buttery medley I am getting excited about it because I am excited,
I am just genuinely chuffed that I managed to smash this recipe, it is so good, effectively
what we are going to do is make some discs of the butter so obviously it is too gooey
right now, we have some cling film there and by dividing that up in two and wrapping it
into some sort of weird sausage shape, shove it in your fridge, I was in a bit of a rush
so I used the freezer, after ten minutes it firms up and turns into a lovely buttery sausage
a phrase I never knew I would say but that is how you make lots of flavoured butters
for steaks and stuff mix it up go crazy with the herbs and the spices you are going to
love it, it is like the new breaking bad, do people still watch that, I never got to
watch that because I do youtube videos for a living. So grab a chicken breast fillet and we are
going to create a kangaroo pouch now to put in our buttery discs later on, so use a nice
sharp knife and go about half way down, in the chicken in terms of height then maybe
go 2 thirds of the way in do not go all the way in but work your way all along and you
form this gorgeous little pouch that is your chicken prepared, so once the butter has firmed
up as I say in the freezer for me that was ten minutes but if you have time the fridge
is fine, slice it up and stuff it in there, maybe about two of those butter discs in the
pouch and you can just press it down just to seal around the edges a little bit but
do not worry we are going to properly seal it now, we are going to get ourselves a nice
little dunking station now, we season the flour slightly you could add salt and pepper
but of course I am using paprika, dunk that in and give it a good mix around, oooh yeah
I love paprika, I really do you guys know that but you could use other spices and stuff,
get creative with it. And then for the breadcrumbs add in some parmesan
cheese you could add some ground up parsley too something like that but mix it all through
and you have got that and beaten egg well which is just egg beaten up really. First step the chicken goes in the flour get
it all nice and antiqued like so, then into the egg be sure to get it as wet as you can
in the egg before sitting it in the breadcrumbs lift the breadcrumbs on try not to move the
chicken breast too much when it is in there otherwise it will go congealed and stuff,
now we give it a double layer to help seal it even more, so it goes back in the flour,
back in the eggs, the back in the breadcrumb with it like that do not be tempted to go
right, I am ready I can cook, by firming it up in the fridge for about 30 minutes, minimum
again I did not put this in the freezer it will really help seal that coating on there. So our flavour packed breadcrumb chicken has
been in the fridge for 30 minutes minimum, it is nice and hugged and as one with our
chicken get yourself a frying pan we are going to shallow fry that so about 4 or 5 tablespoons
of oil in the pan get it nice and warm before placing in the chicken breast, let it cook
away until golden brown turning it over to repeat the same then rest on kitchen towel
just for a moment and while it is frying like that pre heat your oven, because, it is going
in the oven, yes for 20 minutes to cook through nice and slow to the temperature on the screen
right there, it will be nice and tender that chicken hmmm. Take it out and it will be looking golden
brown and gorgeous I cannot rave about this enough, in fact I was so excited normally
I take a thumbnail picture when I have done a recipe, I just cut into it and let the butter
ooze out of it, nice little taste and it was phenomenal. You guys know how much I love paprika that
is rammed into the flour, plus you have the parmesan on the coating too, absolutely gorgeous,
I have always had a fear of making chicken kievs, and that is easy. Give it a go. Now this is 10am so I am having chicken kiev
for a late breakfast so good but it did smell of garlic, smells a bit. But there we are folks a real recipe ticked
off my internal wish list and now I really hope this inspires you to give it a go so
easy to make these fill it with other cheeses and hams and stuff go to town on it, remember
to subscribe for regular recipe videos and food fun, follow us on social media for behind
the scenes bits and bobs and other bonus recipes and that is about it, do not forget to send
me pictures if you try it and let me know down below anything you want to see me take
on next cheers.

    Give this recipe a go folks, it's so easy and one of my faves! More chicken recipes can be found on the chicken recipe playlist

  2. miranda fan says:

    it is 16:35 in the uk

  3. Greg Pitts says:

    Just realised how fucked this recipie is you kill the chicken then take the skin off and finally coat it in its own children

  4. OlEgSaS32 says:

    The way I'm familiar with Chicken Kiev is its actually gotta be ground chicken, since in Russia/Ukraine, a traditional "cutlet" (as what it is literally called if you translate directly: Kiev Cutlet) is made with ground meat and sometimes people would stick a chicken bone into the side to make it easy to hold, or to look like a giant drumstick =P This is a nice variant, i would imagine much less messy since there is no grinding up the chicken

  5. Flaming Ice says:

    That Kiev Chicken very juicy like it is hollow inside and filled with chicken soup instead of water lel

  6. annette fournier says:

    Fabulous. The kids will freak at the parsley. But broccoli is green and they eat that! Like garlic too. It… Could… Work! Chin, Chin. thanks

  7. Zoella Anne says:

    This looks so tasty Barry! Do you think the filling would work if I added some cream to the butter mixture? I'm looking for a way to make the garlic butter a little thicker when it oozes out of the kiev! Thanks and I can't wait to try this one!

  8. Afrieal says:

    Thank you for this recipe, looking forward to trying it. OH and thanks for putting the Fahrenheit temp up, the conversion app on the phone doesn't work well.

  9. Adatin and callie hv says:

    this recipe is easier then the one I have. Thank you so much I have to make this again.

  10. Ben Whittle says:

  12. Damon V D'Amore says:

    You were scared of this!? Seriously!?

  13. Simon Johnny says:

    I replaced the butter and garlic with a little bit of extra chicken, because I like chicken. I replaced the bread crumbing with olive oil dressing. Thanks Barry, it was the best chicken kiev I've ever had!

  14. Sarah Agnew says:

    I live chicken kiev, can't wait to try it this way! I've been slicing & pounding my chicken meat for years. This looks awesome.

  19. Meg Waldorf says:

    Was waiting for you to come uncomfortably close to the camera and whisper "I love paprika" as soon as I saw you putting it in the flour haha! I was wrong though!

  20. Faith Boot says:

    barry can you do different types of homemade dips like bbq or garlic and herb

  21. schinois says:

    Hey Barry, love your vids 🙂
    As non-British (I'm French), I always thought that you positioned the letters SMEG on your fridge as a reference to Red Dwarf (which I love watching since the first series). I'm now realizing that's a real brand in UK :D…
    Keep up the good work! Merci

  22. Kasper Stenbom says:

    Never heard of this.. sounds delicious and looks great!! I love garlic & I love chicken, good combo 😮

  24. Kazim Jafar says:

    You haven't seen Breaking bad? Unsubscribing!!!

  25. me says:

    I really think the introduction with the self made host is a bit over the top 😀
    don't geometry wrong, I get why you do this but just keep it as short as in this video (without the cheesy inspiring you to get in the kitchen) it's crisp and not too much for me to get annoyed and skip the first minute.

  26. TheBlunderman bob says:

    I like Barry because he does a lot of cringey stuff, but the way he plays it off makes it normal

  27. Lucy Bridget says:

    This is similar to Jamie Olivers? Plagiarism?

  28. verity gray says:

    No more queen

  29. Ivana F says:

    paprika is the best i really don't get why people think it's not good

    I've always wanted to be able to make this! It's one of my favorite foods but I don't get many opportunities to eat it. Now I can make some at home c:

  60. Freakychef07 says:

    The putting the butter in the plastic wrap like that you can also do a similar thing with buttercream … roll it inside some plastic wrap and twist the ends then snip one end and put the "bullet" of buttercream into the piping bag … saves big on cleanup etc… buttercream will only mess up the nozzle end of the bag and only a little bit

  61. thomas sayles says:

    those poor eggs. always getting beaten up lol

  62. Vanessa VanDasselaar says:

    My mouth is watering! Is 10pm here (Alberta Canada) and I have to get up at 5am… But if I had some chicken in the fridge I'd be making this! Going on the menu for next week! I also think I'll add more garlic…. Lol

  63. Ethan. says:

    Barry instead of creating a pocket you could have used a meat hammer and smashed the chicken and added stuffing and roll it but you could've added any stuffing

  64. kira w says:

    every time I try ti fry chicken the coating sticks to pan help?

  65. A Lazy Hobo says:

    Add a little grated cheese to your butter/garlic mix…

  66. Dwayne Wladyka says:

    I love garlic. Never too much garlic in cooking. Looks awesome. Make pierogies next Barry. Or try making cabbage rolls.

  67. gore_gamer 12 says:

    hey for mini food yiu could do like apple pie or a birthday cake or just a Christmas cake

  68. soundslave says:

    Nice to see you're including cooking temps and times now Baz.

  69. MissCamiMuller says:

    In Denmark we love a good Paprika dish, and one of the most used, is paprikagryde, which translates into paprika stew.
    If you'd like I would be happy to translate a recipe for you! It's basically pork meat, bacon, paprika, mushrooms, tomato pure and heavy cream! And it is SO good !

  70. doeyhb says:

  80. Megan Zeller says:

    It's also known as a compound butter

  81. Brittany Smith says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the recipe. I had never heard of Chicken Kiev before but I made this tonight for my family and it was a huge hit. Super yummy! and thanks for the degrees in ferinheight for us on the other side of the pond 😉

  82. Michael Copado says:

    Hey, are you using a wide angle lens or something in the beginning? The kitchen looks oddly compressed or smaller than usual. Great video!

  83. Wendy Hamilton says:

    Looks delicious ! 🐔🍽

  84. Zoë Little says:

    I made these and they were so easy and very yummy. The butter stayed in 2 out of 3 breasts but that was down to the shape of it. Double dipping definitely sealed them well. I used fresh breadcrumbs (out of whizzed up toast) though so not sure if that made a huge difference. Thanks for sharing your recipe 😀

  85. Nighthawk7x20 says:

    Kiev's are almost done! I'll send you a pic on instagram with the finished result

  86. Skaolloaks says:

    I used to love chicken Kiev before I got a job working at a restaurant. As part of the prep, one of my jobs was to pound and flatten tons of chicken breast every day. It rather turned me off chicken Kiev, even years after I moved on to bigger better jobs.

    Your video was the first thing that made me want chicken Kiev in years. You made it look so good. I'm fixing it tonight.

  87. kieran says:

    why not chicken Kevin's? that's a better name 😀

  88. TaleiErika says:

    Is the Parmesan absolutely necessary in the breadcrumbs? I'm allergic to cheese

  89. Kaleb Ludwig says:

    I just made this, and wow! It's stonkin'! Thanks Barry!

  90. Ashley S says:

    Barry and the freaking paprika 😂

  91. Aquiles Tadeu Martineli says:


  92. Michaela Schořová says:

    for the egg you can also use pinch of salt and a bit of milk :3

  93. Alterni. Mum says:

    I know this video was from last month but decided to try out the recipe, although a bit messy to make it turned out great and even the kids were saying they want me to make it again.

  94. lahger says:

    Second time I watch this now, damn it looks amazing! Gonna try it out with my wifie 🙂

  95. Michael Davies says:

    I remember having this as a child brings back so many memories. Love the videos Barry

  96. LewisXvidz says:

    Made these today and wow they taste amazing, thanks for the recipe Barry 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  97. T C says:

    I love when Barry murmurs "my mind is telling me no" 😂

  98. Allan S says:

    look really good but I hate butter. I get sick just by the smell of it

  99. 1angelofthelight2 says:

    Gosh that looks good – must have a go. I love the double dip idea. I tried it with the popcorn chicken recipe and it was wonderful.
