Chicken Kiev (Ukrainian: Котлета по-київськи, kotleta po-kyivsky) is a popular breaded cutlet dish of boneless chicken breast pounded and rolled around cold garlic butter with herbs, then breaded and either fried or baked.
However, the Russian food historian William Pokhlebkin claimed that Chicken Kiev was invented in the Moscow Merchants' Club in the early 20th century, and was subsequently renamed Chicken Kiev (котлета по-київськи, kotleta po-kyivsky, lit. 'Kiev-style cutlet') by a Soviet restaurant.
There are other dishes similar to Chicken Kiev. Particularly popular is Chicken Cordon Bleu with a cheese and ham filling instead of butter.
