Pesto Chicken Kiev (Dairy Free)

I grew up in the 1980s which means I love a good chicken kiev ๐Ÿ˜‚

Actually any breaded chicken was a firm fave and I still love it now. But being dairy free means that I can’t buy some of the regular shop bought ones – no problem … they are easy to cook at home!

Serves 4

You will need:ย 

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 3 tbspย of dairy free pesto
  • 3 tbsp of dairy free spread ( I use Pure)
  • A bowl of flour (seasoned with salt and pepper)
  • 3 eggs whisked and put in a bowl
  • Homemade breadcrumbs in a separate bowl (seasoned with salt and pepper)

Let’s Cook it!

  1. Mix together the pesto and the dairy free spread.
  2. Take each chicken breast and with a sharp knife cut a slit in each one. You are looking to make each one look a little like a pitta bread ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Next take an equal amount of the pesto mix and put it inside each of the slits in the chicken breasts.
  4. Now take each chickenย breast and dip in flour, then egg and then breadcrumbs so that they are fully coated.
  5. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 30/35 minutes until cooked through.
