  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.

made our own garlic butter, and added one red chilli and some grated parmasan to the bread crumbs for more flavour, cooked in the oven not the grill, because easier as served it with chips. All in all a good recipe very tasty but prefer normal style kievs!

Made this for tea last night using quorn fillets as we are vegetarian. Used Olive spread instead of butter and did use extra brown bread crumbs. It tasted great, I scored the top of the quorn fillets to allow the garlic butter to sink in during cooking topped it with the garlic breadcrumbs then I popped them in the oven for 20 mins.

This has to be one of the yummiest dinners I have cooked! I did change it slightly and cooked the chicken in the oven and not the grill. Also as I was doing this for two people I adjusted the quantity accordingly. I made a couple of slits in each chicken breast first and pushed in a little of the garlic butter and seasoned. I then cooked the breasts on gas 6 for 20 minutes. I then took them out and spread the breadcrumb mixture on each one and cooked for a further 10 minutes until golden. The chicken was moist and delicious. I did cheat and bought lurpak garlic butter rather than make my own! The garlic was just the right amount. If anyone is on ww and looking to cook this then I have valued each chicken breast as 7 pro points.

loved this, served simply with new potatoes and green veg. Normal Kiev always seems to loose sauce when cooking and ends up rather dry - this stays really moist

Really quick and easy. I served it with a creamy potato gratin for a little extra indulgence, along with garden peas.
