A dish attaining great popularity in British restaurants during the 1970"s; this has been largely maintained by it"s suitability as a pre-prepared meal; so an ideal supermarket offering. It consists of a boned and flattened chicken breast, wrapped around a knob of chilled garlic butter, covered in breadcrumbs, then deep-fried. Cheaper bought versions are often made with reformed chicken meat, and don"t compare to the real thing.
It has no connection to Kiev in the Ukraine, the origins of its name being unsure.
