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. A-MAZ-ING!
    So easy and versatile to make.
    Only down side is that this used to be my go to meal when we went out for dinner. Now nothing even comes close to tasting this good!

  2. I used the crumb base to crumb some chicken breast (didn’t do the kiev) – soooo delicious! Even my 4 year old asked if we could have it again tomorrow night.
    I used half almonds, half sunflower seeds and threw in some garlic powder.
    Can’t wait to have them again!

  3. Hi. I am big fan of skinnymixer recipes. I tried this last night and loved it. However, my wife was not a big fan of this as the chicken breast was minced. She is not fussy, just prefers less processed meals.
    Would this recipe work okay with a full chicken breast? I realise the Parmesan Cheese would not be incorporated with the mixture however, I have previously used Parmesan in crumb mixture for Chicken Parmigianas which is always delish.
    Appreciate any comments

    1. Why not get a chicken breast and make a slit down the middle and stuff with the herbed butter then crumb? I’m sure that would work and would be so yummy 😊 Good luck!

  4. Made them for the first time last night, delicious! I had the leftover for lunch today with a little salad. Surprisingly filling
    Thanks for another great recipe!

  5. Why did I wait so long to make these?? They are amazing!!!!
    Hubby loved them as well!
    Will definitely make again and throw in the freezer for quick and easy dinners!!

  6. I found little piece’s of plastic inside of my chicken Kiev I want a refund what if I ate it Daniel stellar 18 Sampson street Whyalla 5608 south Australia mail only

    1. That would obviously be ‘your own fault’!….
      Have you realised Daniel, that the whole world now has your address?

  7. My family loves this recipe, thank you for sharing.

    I have recently been experimenting making cocktail party sized balls. I was wondering if you or anyone else could recommend a dipping sauce that would compliment the flavoured of the kievs?

  8. I have made these deilcous gems 3 times now. Tonight my 18 year okd son had 2 friends over, so for 1 kilo of chicken breast I fed 5 adults. They sat ther in silence , eating an d groaning with happiness. Thanks , Nik xx

  9. Oh my god, these are the best and so easy to make. Thank god i froze 2 of them or we would have ate them as well tonight!

  10. Nik, these are so delicious! I have made them twice now and are a big hit at my house! Thank you so much for making beautiful yummy and easy recipes so that I can cook them and seem like I’m a wiz in the kitchen 😉

  11. Nik, these are PHENOMENAL. So quick and easy too!
    I made my garlic herb butter from a 600ml tub of cream and froze it into a log – it must enough butter rounds for probably 3 batches, and as a bonus they were super easy to shape around.

  12. All I can say is yummy! I wasn’t sure as I am not a huge fan of things made with blended up chicken breast. But these were really good! I think I will use just bread crumbs to coat instead of almonds next time but it was much much better then I had imagined! Thank you!

  13. I could not be happier with these babies. My new absolute favourite. These are so good to pull out of the freezer and whack in the over. I don’t think I can even get sick of these. Thank you Nik, you bloody genius.

  14. I received my thermomix today- very exciting! After rave reviews was hoping to make this in the next few days, apologises if this seems to be self explanatory but could you please explain how you put the butter in with breast cubed? Ie would they have to be snitzel like pieces? And how does it keep it shape? I was actually thinking of using thighs to avoid chicken from drying out so in this case would I just use 4-6 theighs with the butter? Finally are these best frozen undercooked or defrosted and cooked separately? Thank you very much!

    1. The recipe states ‘Step 4-Without washing mixer bowl, put chicken ingredients, including reserved Parmesan cheese and 20 g of the reserved crumb mixture into mixer bowl. Blend for 40 sec/speed 9/MC on.’.

      You only cube the chicken so it minces easier in the machine. ☺

  15. These are so yummy. I’ve made them many times, sometimes using only sunflower seeds for the crust or a mix of almonds and seeds to make it cheaper, and omitting the cheese. My fussy 22 year old brother who won’t like anything if he knows it is healthy or gluten free requested I make these again when he was down here – he would have never eaten them if he knew they were good for him! I haven’t made it past the traditional filling yet as they are so good as they are!

  16. Another thermomix winner!! Surprisingly easy too (I’m the type of person that skips recipes if they have more than four steps!) Hubby loved it as well. I ran out of butter so substituted in natural yoghurt with half as much butter to bulk it up a bit and it was still delish!

  17. Made these tonight. For my Fodmapers and allergy eaters I used Nuttelex and mixed herbs from the garden. I used rice crumbs, mainly because I could not bothered making teh different crumb mixes for fodmapers and allergies. Had to make two batches as one wasnt enough for lunches and serving 5.for dinner.
    YUM YUMM . This chicken is a big winner!
