Skinnymixers Tips

We have seen a few tips in the Skinnymixers Facebook Group to achieve the best ‘ooze’ factor. Follow these tips to get maximum ooze.

  1. Wet your hands when forming the Kievs and make sure they are sealed really well.
  2. Freeze your garlic butter or other alternative filling first.
  3. Follow the recipe and pan-fry first to make sure you don’t over cook in the oven trying to achieve a crispy coating.
  4. Some Skinnies prefer to freeze first and cook from frozen.

P.S. We love seeing the slow motion Chicken Kiev cutting videos in Skinnymixers!

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: LCHF
Servings: 6


Crumb ingredients:

  • 100 g raw almonds or alternative nut or sunflower seeds for nut free
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp onion flakes or powder
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Herbed garlic butter ingredients:

  • 100 g cold salted butter cubed
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • small handful of fresh parsley
  • small handful of fresh basil
  • pinch of fresh thyme

Chicken ingredients:

  • 500 g chicken breast cubed
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 100 g Parmesan cheese cubed
  • oil of choice for frying


  • Put raw almonds into mixer bowl, mill for 5 sec/speed 9/MC on. Set aside and stir through spices, salt, and pepper.
  • Without washing mixer bowl, put Parmesan cheese into mixer bowl, mill for 10 sec/speed 9/MC on. Set aside.
  • Without washing mixer bowl, put herbed butter ingredients into mixer bowl, blend for 40 sec/speed 5/MC on. Set aside.
  • Without washing mixer bowl, put chicken ingredients, including reserved Parmesan cheese and 20 g or 0.7 oz of the reserved crumb mixture into mixer bowl. Blend for 40 sec/speed 9/MC on.


  • Preheat a frying pan to medium high heat, and oven to 180°C or 350°F fan forced.
  • Take chicken mixture and divide it up into 4 or 6 round balls. Wet hands help with this.
  • Take one of the balls and flatten it out to the size of your palm. Place 1/4 or 1/6 of the herbed garlic butter in the centre. Fold chicken mixture around the butter and form an oval shape - like the shape of a chicken breast. Ensure there are no thin spots so your buttery goodness doesnt ooze out while cooking.
  • Coat the chicken liberally in the reserved crumb mixture and set aside. Repeat the process for the remaining chicken.
  • When all chicken is coated, recrumb a second time.
  • Put oil of choice into frying pan and lightly fry the kievs for a few minutes each side, or until golden brown.
  • Transfer fried kievs to a preheated 180°C or 350°F airfryer for 7 mins, or oven proof roasting tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until done (smaller ones may need a little less time!)
  • Let the kievs rest for 5 mins before serving.



If you want to ensure your butter doesnt leak out of your kievs, freeze the butter in a cylinder (wrapped in gladwrap) and use it frozen.
If you arent keen on frying, you can bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning once half way through.
Yes - this can be frozen for a quick dinner - freeze raw! (Bake 180°C or 350°F 25-35 mins from frozen - check after 20 mins)
Experiment with your herbed garlic flavours - for example chilli and ginger for an asian inspired dish or cheese added for a fat boost.
Breadcrumbs can be used as an alternative to the almond meal for those not following LCHF - do an eggwash before crumbing for this.

LCHF Chicken Kiev Thermomix recipe


  1. Finally made these last night and OMG!! AMAZING!! The whole clan loved them especially Miss 14 months. Will be making a few batches this weekend for the freezer. BUT… Does anyone know of anything that can substitute the butter for a lower fat option?? I’m only meant to have 30g of fat per day and I made 7 portions with this recipe and 1 Kiev is 23g of fat 🙁

  2. I finally made these Kiev’s after putting it off thinking it would be too difficult. Was easier that I thought. I always get my husband to give me a score out of 5 when I make a new meal. So far every one has gotten me a 4. Today he was so impressed (blown away) and gave me a 10+ out of 5 and has not stopped talking about them. He actually thought I had given him a very sharp knife because it just slid through the Kiev. He has been complimenting me all afternoon.
    Will definitely be making these again and will try some other fillings as well.

  3. These ar the tastiest Kieves I have ever eaten, and I always make them when we have guests for dinner. its so easy to double the batch and put what I don’t need in the freezer for an quick, super tasty week night meal. served with Niks Sweet Potato mash… its a match made in heaven. YUM!

  4. My non thermie husband best meal! Thanks Nik.
    Flavours are amazing. They freeze well. Fry or oven
    cook – both great.

  5. Love love love this chicken Kiev recipe. I often change up the filling by adding ham/cheese, sun dried tomatoes etc. a family favorite

  6. That is “Chicken Kiev” as much as I am Pope John Paul the 2nd. Perfect example of someone who has no idea what the original recipe looks or tastes like. What is even more idiotic is that if you actually DO follow the Chicken Kiev recipe but replace the breadcrumbs (the only carb really in the whole recipe) with ground pork rinds, you got a LCHF recipe. what beats me is why in the world call it “chicken kiev” at all? You invented it, give it a name. It has nothing to do with a chicken Kiev.

  7. I decided to bite the bullet and give the kievs a go. I can’t believe I waited this long. They were delicious and so easy to make. I have a bellini and found the instructions very easy to follow. To use up the rest of the fresh herbs I brought I made up extra herb butter for next time. Thank you so much Nik

  8. One if my favourites! Great to make in batches and keep on hand in the freezer for quick meals.
    Have used sunflower seeds in place of almonds and it worked out just as good.

  9. The chicken kievs are super easy and delicious. First time I made them as per the recipe, my husband wasn’t so keen on the almond meal. On the weekend I made them with fresh breadcrumbs ( that I had made) and the kievs were an absolute hit. Everyone at the dinner party raved about how moist the chicken was, an awesome meal. I had also made my own butter- garlic butter and sun-dried tomato, garlic and olive butter. I love that the chicken kievs made me appear to be an awesome cook! 🙂

  10. Best dinner ever!!
    Took some to work the next day and everyone tried a piece & loved it. Work was a bit smelly like garlic for a while but so so worth it.

  11. A family favourite – I even forgot the egg last time and it was still just as amazing. Very versatile too and I can’t wait to try some other fillings. Gotta serve with something (potato, bread….) to mop up all the beautiful buttery goodness!

    1. Reading this I just realised I too forgot the egg when I made them tonight lol! I didn’t even notice until now haha!

  12. These were so good! My I-don’t-cook husband made them and my fussy sister loved them… They’ll be a repeat in our house! I’m new to thermo cooking and absolutely love this site!

  13. So easy to make and so yummy. Even my super fussy 14 yo daughter ate one for dinner and said how good it was!! Thankyou Nik xxxxx

  14. Just made my first Skinnymixer recipe using this. Yummo! Way better than store bought – tastier, less chewy and more filling!
    My modifications were coriander for parsley, and savoury yeast (about 1/2 tsp) for Parmesan.
    I need these in my freezer! Yesterday 🙂
    Thanks so much for the recipe.

  15. Wondering whether you can make these with chicken mince? Relatively new to thermie world and wasn’t sure whether it would turn to mush?

  16. I have been putting these off thinking they would be too much hard work and knowing hubby he would complain about the chicken!! But they were SO simple and easy to make and a complete winner! Everybody loved them and I can’t wait to make more and try different filling combinations 🙂

  17. Another hit from Nikalene, delicious & so easy to make too. I froze the garlic butter in separate glad wrap pieces for a couple of hours to make it easier.

  18. I was very apprehensive about making these, as last time I made lives – they didn’t go down too well…..They all loved them the only request was if we could have a breadcrumbs coating next time…think I can live with that…thanks again for a great recipe
