Forcemeat Kiev cutlets - an easy cooking option
Chicken Kiev is the most delicious, in my opinion, dish that can be prepared from chicken breast. If you are too lazy to mess with the fillet, mincemeat from the breast comes to the rescue. In this recipe with a photo, I will tell you in detail how to cook Kiev style meatballs from minced meat so that they turn out juicy and tasty. When cooking, it is important that during the frying process, the melted butter does not break free (from cutlets), so carefully breaded cutlets, do not leave a millimeter without a “fluffy coat” of crackers.
For Kiev minced meat patties, it is also important to cool the minced meat and shaped patties, so do not neglect these recommendations.

Divide the oil with herbs into 5 equal parts, form small cylinders. Put a cylinder of butter in the center of the minced tortillas.

Next, bread the chicken Kiev in wheat flour. We thoroughly bread so that there are no powdery places left.
Beat a raw chicken egg with a fork, dip the Kiev cutlets first into a beaten egg, then bread in breadcrumbs, again in the egg and again in breadcrumbs. The result is a fairly thick crust of breading.
At this stage, we remove the finished semi-finished product in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, this is important.
We heat the ghee in the pan, put the patties in a preheated pan, fry until golden brown on both sides. Cut the stalks of green onions along in half, fry next to them in a pan.
