Fines Herbs Chicken Kiev
Serve over mashed potatoes to catch the buttery insides when you cut into the chicken. A simple arugula salad adds a fresh peppery bite.

Prep time 30 min
Total time 1 hr 25 min
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
3 TBS EVOO
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 small garlic clove, peeled
6 TBS unsalted butter, room temperature
2 TBS finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 TBS finely chopped fresh chives
1/2 TBS finely chopped fresh tarragon
1/2 TBS finely chopped fresh chervil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 oz each)
3 TBS all-purpose flour (can sub w/ GF)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Lemon wedges, for serving
1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Combine panko, olive oil, & 1/4 tsp salt on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring twice, until deep golden-brown, about 5 min. Let cool completely, then crush a few handfuls for finer crumbs. .
2. Meanwhile, using the flat-side of a knife, smash the garlic against a cutting board. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt & continue to crush with the knife to smear mixture together to form smooth paste. Scrape into a sm bowl; stir in butter & herbs. Transfer butter mixture to center of a sheet of plastic wrap. Fold plastic wrap over butter mixture & shape into a log. Pull the plastic wrap taut & twist ends to seal. Refrig until firm, about 45 min. .
3. Using a sharp paring knife, carve a pocket in each chicken breast by inserting the tip into the side of the breast & cutting an opening lengthwise, leaving about 1" uncut on each side & being careful to not cut all the way thru. Cut the butter into thin slices. Place 1/4 of the butter inside each pocket. Seal pocket by pressing together the opening. .
4. Pat dry chicken; season w/ s & p. Dredge in flour, tapping off excess. Dip in beaten egg; coat with panko mixture, patting to adhere. Arrange cutlets in one layer on a separate rimmed baking sheet. Bake until cooked thru, 15-18 min.
to make-ahead, coat chick w/ panko &freeze breasts in a single layer separate. To cook, bake at 425 F until cooked thru, about 30 min.
