Ultimate Chicken Kiev | Jamie’s Comfort Food | Kerryann Dunlop

Hi Food Tube. Kerryann here. I’m going to show you how to make a great classic. Homemade chicken Kiev it’s a great recipe. chicken breast stuffed with garlic
butter and bacon and then breaded and fried. Perfect as a weekend treat or to impress your friends at dinner
party its from my old friend Jamie Oliver’s book Comfort Food. We’re gonna make it from
scratch. So to start, I’ve got four rashers of smoked streaky bacon and I’m gonna
fry that in a nice medium hot pan until it’s lovely and
crispy. Over here I have four skinless chicken breasts. Now I’m gonna
go into the thickest part of the breast which is here with the tip of a sharp knife. We need to make a pocket to stuff it
with our lovely butter and bacon. We don’t wanna go all the way
through. We’ve got a nice little pocket there. Lets get another chicken breast. Oh this one’s being a little bit naughty. Beautiful Now I’ve just touched raw chicken so that’s why I just ran over to the sink to wash my hands, because raw meat and cooked meat are not best friends. Make sure you wash your hands in between all of your jobs. That’s getting nice and crispy and that bacon looks like it’s about ready. Lets get this down on the kitchen towel
because we don’t want it to be greasy and then we’re gonna use some homemade garlic and herb butter. If you wanna see how I did this click on
the butter and check it out. I’m going to slice it. So, chicken breast and some butter, and stuff it in to that little pocket there. And then I’m just going to take some bacon. Now guys if you don’t eat pork that’s absolutely fine. You don’t have to put the bacon in. A bit more butter. And then we’re gonna make sure that’s closed up nicely. Beautiful. Next we need to create a crispy outer
layer and to do that we need to put it in breadcrumbs. In France they call this penne Anglais. Me, I just tend to call it food glue. I’ve got three teaspoons, ordinary, all-purpose flour. In here I’m gonna have two large eggs. These are free-range and just lightly beat these two eggs, just to combine them really. On this plate I’ve got about 150g of white breadcrumbs. You can use wholemeal if you want. You can use panko if you want to. Bit of Parmesan? Play around So, we’re going to be coating the chicken in flour nice and gently cos we don’t want all the the good stuff to fall out. dust off any excess and then straight into the egg, because the egg is going to act as the glue for the breadcrumbs to stick to. And out of the egg into the breadcrumbs. Now if you are a little bit unsure and you’re worried that all your lovely herby butter is going to leak out you can double dip. So I’m going to do that here with this one but normally I would only do one one layer. Now I’ve got a nice non-stick pan over a medium to high heat and I’m gonna add some sunflower oil. About two centimetres. So in we go with you my friend. That one as well. Now guys if you want to save a little bit of time and put the breadcrumbs on these and leave them in the fridge overnight just make sure they’re well covered, well wrapped kept at the bottom of the fridge and you’ll be absolutely fine. So lets have a little look. Oh look at that. That just makes me so happy. We just want to get them nice and golden
like this on all sides. If you wanna be extra, extra healthy just
put them on a tray with a little drizzle of olive oil put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes and they’ll be absolutely fine. They won’t be as crispy as if you’d fried them but they’ll still taste absolutely great. Lets have a look at this under here. Oh yes! Wowzers, Here’s the last one. Now i’m going to wash my hands. Again. Okay, so I’ve fried them off. Look how lovely and crispy and golden they are. I’m going to put these in the oven. It’s pre-heated at 180 degrees. For about 10 minutes until they’re cooked through. See you soon my friends. Oh they smell so good. And we’ve had a little bit of leakage. But you know what, in the grand scheme of things it’s not that bigger deal. I mean they’re sitting in the butter that’s leaked. So they’ll be soaking it up anyway. Right, what I’m going to serve them with is broccoli mash. It’s literally just some mashed potatoes with some mashed broccoli running through it. If you wanna see how I make basic mash and a few other different
great types of mash as well click the link and they’ll take you straight to my video. Bit more. A little bit of spinch and rocket salad. Lovely. Now, it’s the moment guys. Oh wow! Look at that. All those herbs and the bacon and the garlic. Oh I wish you could smell this guys. Google glass you need to come up with smelly vision. Smelly vision? Smelly vision. Ha ha ha! That is so amazing. So there you have it guys. Home made chicken kiev. Give it a go let me know how you get on in the comment box below. Tell me if you did anything different, if you used any different flavoured butters. Different kind of breadcrumbs. If you cooked it differently. But most importantly if you enjoyed it.

    Proper way of doing this is to mince the chicken breast

  5. Christopher Silverton-Thong says:

    I loved it 

  6. Stormfox says:

    So you baked the bacon, and washed your hands because you touched the raw chicken. But later on you just stuff the baked bacon into the raw chicken.

  7. Jim Barr says:

    this is meant for anyone cooking…Rinsing your hands with water is not washing them,it just spreads the bacteria around your hands.Anyone who is able to measure the bacteria on your hands with UV do it and you`ll be amazed and horrified.

  8. Rusty Fingers says:

    and about salt in the chicken?

  9. ILI PENA says:

    ni eres jaime. ni esta traducido al español

  10. Andrew Bostaph says:

  19. Erikas Glavdelis says:


  20. VIREN says:

    noo nooo !

    that flav. butter should be in liquid form when you cut the chicken…

    no disrespect .but i m gonna prefer marco white's recipe…

  21. tylersmyler says:

    I'm gonna make this for my wife on V-day..

    wish me luck! 

  22. Gary Mcatear says:

    Thanx very much Kerryann, for years i've been wanting to know how to make garlic butter in order to make chicken kievs and now i know how to make the lot 🙂

  23. heheitssimone says:

    Why is it bad to touch raw meat?

  24. beterthenever says:

    Chicken Kiev is meant to have butter pouring from the chicken when cut therefore chicken can not possibly leak while cooked as it ruins the whole idea. Now there is no need to squeeze the chicken to see the butter because if done properly butter will, well yes, pour out of the chicken.

  25. Lou Lenehan says:

    To all you warriors complaining about her adding bacon; Bite my weiner. When has adding bacon ever been a bad thing? Seems like an odd thing to get worked up over.

  26. Владимир Мирошниченко says:

    The first movement say that she can not cook chicken Kiev !! It tells you cook 4 digits of Ukraine

  27. Владимир Мирошниченко says:

    The fact that she opened burgers frying it wrong

  28. John Ferguson says:

    I heard Chicken Kiev from Orange is the New Black.:)

  29. SuperBlueboy61 says:

    Metal fork/slice with non-stick pan ,one way to mess your pan up?

  30. Aritra Kanjilal says:

    I am just wondering if anyone ever tried adding fresh cream to the garlic butter? If yes, how did it turn out to be? The reason why I am asking is because I feel fresh cream would tend to stay more inside the chicken pocket than butter so even if the butter oozes out while frying, there would still be something buttery (read creamy) inside!!

  31. Accuser/Opposer says:

    Hm. No love. 4/10

  32. Александар Ђорђев says:

    you cure depresion

  33. ClenzieME says:

    so yummy

  34. dat punk says:

    why does her face looks so annoying?? In my opinion, she has the most annoying face ever for me. go judge me. IDC . you are just stupid to judge me.

  35. Abdallah Bissar says:

    Scariest chef on the internet confirmed.

  36. GamersComputer says:

    Jamie's recipe also says 2 CM of oil, however, she just drizzled a bit. If you add 2 CM of oil it will be more 'fried'. 🙂

  37. Triumvirate888 says:

    She said she added 2 centimeters of oil to the pan… Was that before or after she turned on the stove's temperature to 180 kilograms?

  38. indianaP wnz says:

    She needs a good salad, this isn't a good advert for comfort food 😉 Bless she doesn't want the bacon to be greasy loooool. Then stuffs the bastard with butter mwhaaaaa. Then a little bit more butter. Looks like a belter Kiev though 😉
    Have since made this recipe and can safely say you need to season the breadcrumbs with salt and pepper otherwise it's shit.

  39. Bahjat Haddad says:

    I like your passion for cooking!

  40. Ducati M says:

    She really looks like Jamie! What the F!!!!!!

  41. Gassed Ay3 says:

  43. Mohamad Shamel says:

    2:20 it's called breading. You don't have to make up another name.

  47. Jackos Allotment says:

    Thank you for this, Kerryann! Your instructions were clear & easy to follow. I made it, but stuffed it with butter, ham, cheddar & some chilli flakes. The chicken was tender & moist. It tasted amazing!

  55. Артем Дрига says:

  63. Rory Khan says:

    Whoever you are you smashed that flip man that is amazing! The fact that you were able to cook it all perfect timing and keep the chicken soft with the filling is amazing. Gonna start watchin your videos man! God bless from Seth from Battersea big up!

  64. DustClouds says:

    ''raw meat and coocked meat are not best friends'' washes hands, then continues to stuff the cooked meat into raw meat -_-

  65. RobinHoodUKIP says:

  66. Rebecca says:

    I did use toothpick to prevent leaking but the Chicken Kiev just became Chicken in Parsley n Butter ;( next time I need to sew the chicken breast lol

  67. DoNotTrust says:

    What a shame to call this Chicken Kiev.

  68. Lydia Slappendel-Keereweer says:

  71. Pre Cooked Water says:

    The plates are raw

  72. Damian Labrie says:

    This Kerryanne looks the part. Council estate hairdo. Council estate food. Kerryanne! Queen of Council estate cooking.

  73. augustgphs says:

    I love watching and listening to Kerryann. She delightful! And…..the food looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  74. Nathaniel Berkeley-Biggs says:

    Unfortunately if you live in the UK this recipe can’t be done with Sainsbury or Tesco chicken because it has been soaked in water beforehand to make you pay more by weight. (It’s actually fraud) The problem is that our supermarket chicken is like pus, if you pick a Sainsbury chicken breast up it will just fall apart, and when you cook it, your Baki g tray floods with water and ruins the dish. The chicken boils in its own water and shrinks to tiny tough bullets.

    Your chicken is even a different colour to ours. UK supermarket chicken is nearly white as it’s so water bloated. And of course it has no flavour. Our supermarkets in UK always put profit before quality, it’s all about deception and cutting corners to make us pay more for less. The end result is rotten value bad quality food. Shame because this dish looks good.

    Maybe you could do a special Sainsbury version? And come up with some way of first removing the added water? I use a hairdryer.

  75. Nathaniel Berkeley-Biggs says:

    You can’t do this with supermarket bacon either Sainsbury bacon is water logged and full of really nasty chemicals that cause stomach cancer. When you cook it, it boils it doesn’t crisp and you have to wipe all of the white chemical froth off it. UK supermarket bacon bears no resemblance to ordinary normal bacon.

  76. Nathaniel Berkeley-Biggs says:

    A standard, normal chicken breast should cost about £8 each, that’s what chicken costs. If you want to buy cheaper stuff from Sainsbury then you have to accept that they have cut corners and ruined it in order to get the price lower.

  77. Oleg Kolot says:

    Should be not bad, but far from original Chicken Kiev.

  78. scott12at says:

    Came for the Kiev. Stayed for the haircut.

  79. galen stone says:

    She should take that ring off. unsanitary.

  80. Joseph Hanley says:

    What is all purpose flour!!!! is plain or self raising?

  81. Masakka says:

    No salt, no pepper, no seasoning???

  82. Johnny Doe says:

    that was butter stuffed chicken breast, but non a chicken kiev

  83. WALLY says:

    I thought that bitch was bald until I saw her "hairline"

  84. Andy1138 says:

    LOVE your videos (been catching up to them since I've found Jamie's Food Tube). and It's only taken about 20yrs of watching cooking shows before I'be finally heard someone say "wash your hands after touching raw meat" lol. Such a simple idea, that people don't do (and then people get sick), and yet it's never mentioned. So another awesome thing you've done!

  85. CloudySnow says:

    My Chicken Kiev hat? NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

  86. i am jellyfush says:

    Two words. Food wishes

  88. nailartbyteena says:

    Thats so much easier than I thought it would be. Thanks 👌

  89. Pixel Dnb says:

    Brine the chicken first, 10000x the flavour.

  90. Mr. Sholay says:

    Love it when she slapped that meat

  91. Swagata D says:

    I can imagine this to be rather bland on the outside…the chicken wasn't even salt and peppered.

  92. Ikariotiko Stigma says:

    I have no clue of what am doing but im getting paid for it

  93. Mark Sesum says:

    It's getting really boring with the pushing of kitchen 'hygiene', we're adults for Christ sake. Wash your hands after touching the chicken 'because raw meat and cooked meat aren't best friends'. Yes, we know that, but that wasn't relevant here because the bacon is going to be cooked twice isn't it. What kind of sense does your hand wash make, when you take the cooked bacon and then stuff it in the raw chicken??

  94. Søren Christiansen says:

    The taste of this dish is AMAZING! that chicken is my favourite. Absolutely super nice!

  95. Kozak Vasyl says:

    There is no city called Kiev. The capital of Ukraine is KYIV.

  96. G Boss says:

    U fuct that up

  97. Larry Bradley says:

    Sooooo, we going to Kerryann's house for dinner then?

  98. subi star says:

    Kerryann, you are wonderful and I love your recipes! This one turned out a bit (well, quite) dry though – can you recommend a sauce to go with it on the side? Yes, I know I can look online, but I want your expertise!
