James Beard's Chicken Kiev

40 mins (prep 15, cooking 25)
12 ingredients
4 servings
I've had this recipe for probably 20 years. We always let the kids pick dinner for their birthdays and all 5 of them pick this every year. I got this recipe out of one of James Beard's cookbooks and it is fantastic. Time does not reflect freezing time for the butter.
