  1. Place the chicken on a baking tray, rub with a little of the butter, season and cook under the grill for 15 mins, turning once until cooked through.

  2. Mix together the remaining garlic butter and breadcrumbs. Remove the chicken from the grill and top each breast with a smear of the breadcrumbed butter. Return to the grill and cook 3-5 mins until the breadcrumbs are golden and the butter melted. Serve any buttery juices, alongside new potatoes and peas or broad beans.

Made it for the family this evening, we all loved it, even my fussy 3 year old daughter!! Served it with peas, sweet corn and broccoli and garlic potatoes - beautiful and so easy. My son scored it 9 out of 10!

Cracking recipe and a no brainer as far as ease of prep is concerned. I normally add extra garlic as a matter of course and am glad I did here. Served with homemade chips and baked beans, as suggested elsewhere, which really worked really well. A comfy 5 stars as far as Im concerned.

This is great - so easy and full of flavour. I usually oven cook the chicken for 15 mins then put the butter/breadcrumb mix on for the last 5 mins or so. I toast the breadcrumbs in a dry frying pan to make them crispy.

Really nice and very simple.

Very tasty but the texture of the bread crumbs was a little too flakey. Might have to base the chicken with some egg yolk next time. Easy to prepare though.

Very tasty and a good healthy alternative to a normal chicken kiev. I halved the ingredients for two people. I did the chicken fillet plain for 5 minutes in the George Foreman grill then finished it off with the topping under the grill for 3 minutes. The butter along with a large clove of garlic plus some bread all went into the Kenwood mini chopper and pulse until the right texture so was very easy indeed. I served it with jacket potatoes, broccoli, broad beans and petit pois. The flavours worked well but without any sauce the potato was a little dry so needs a dollop of low fat creme fraiche or some kind of healthy sauce to top.

used 2 cloves of garlic cut into small chunks and mixed into 2 tablespoons of melted butter, with golden breadcrumbs. Was delicious, and the chicken stayed really moist. Would defenitely cook it again, though both me and my wife love garlic so that could be why.

Really quick and easy to make. I made it with homemade oven fries and it was very tasty. A great alternative to conventional chicken kievs.

My husband loves chicken kiev but I try to avoid it as the pre-prepared versions you can buy are so unhealthy. I tried this as an alternative one night and although it was nice garlic-y chicken, there was nothing kiev-like about it and it failed to pass the husband test. Not sure I would make again.

This is a brilliant dish im 10 and i made this for my dad it tasted amazing loved it very easy to cook but maybe a bit of seasoning might of made it exceptional.
