  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.

Cooked this on Fathers Day last Sunday, my dad doesn't do fancy cooking, although he does like garlic, so thought this would be a good recipe to try. Served with new potatoes and salad it went down a treat. The bonus was it's so quick and easy. Will be doing this again (including my dad)

These were easy to make and the chicken was moist and tasty with the garlic butter. I cooked in the oven and added to cherry tomatoes and mushrooms to the tray towards the end.

I halved the recipe for 2 people, but still made my garlic butter with 25g clover and about 3/4 of a garlic clove as I was worried the garlic taste wouldn't be strong enough. It turned out to be just the right amount, and very tasty! I used the oven instead of the grill, and added some cherry tomatoes for the last 15 minutes which went well with it. Also served with jacket potatoes and broccoli.

This was very nice. We had it with Roast Potatos and veg. We used some garlic butter and olive oil to cook the potatos giving the potatos a slight hint of Garlic.

Question is, why do you need the oven on for this recipe? This is a quick 'n' easy, just as tasty alternative to traditional kiev. Goes well with baked beans and homemade potato wedges.
