Sandie's week RC


I picked Orange Chicken Kiev. It was good! I would put spinach in the middle too if we made it again!!




Orange Chicken Kiev

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tbsp minced chives
2 tbsp minced fresh parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 egg
1/4 cup orange juice
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 tsp grated orange peel

In a bowl, combine the butter, chives, parsley, salt and pepper. Shape into a
6 inch x 2 inch rectangle; place on waxed paper. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut frozen butter mixture mixture into 6 strips; place one strip in the center of each chicken breast half. Roll up each and tuck in the ends; secure with a toothpick.
Place the flour in a shallow bowl. In another bowl, beat egg and orange juice. In a third bowl, combine bread crumbs and orange peel. Coat chicken with flour, dip in egg mixture, then roll in crumb mixture. Place seam side down in a greased 13 X 9 baking dish.
Bake uncovered at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Discard toothpick before serving.
