Recipe Notes

There's nothing to really prepare for this meal. All the ingredients were purchased from Coles and then put together. The chicken and potato gems need cooking and then after letting the chicken rest for 10 minutes, I added the coleslaw and aioli. 

Frequently asked questions

What’s the Coles Chicken Kiev like?

Not too bad. I’ve had better, but this was quite edible and the garlic and cheese was nice. The crumb could have been better. To be far, the person who served me was a little rough and knocked some of the bread crumb coating off.

Would you call it value for money?

The delicatessen at Coles sells the Chicken Kiev at a fairly cheap price, so yes, I’d regard it as value for money.

Are you sponsored by Coles?

No, I get no support or sponsorship for anything on this blog.

At the delicatessen

When you’re at the delicatessen in a supermarket like Coles and you see something like ready prepared Chicken Kiev, there’s never a sign with cooking instructions on it. I assume, the people on staff just assume you know how long to cook them otherwise you’d be buying them in a packet (with directions on the back) from the freezer section right?

Food safety

Well with the amount of salmonella in Canberra lately, there is a clear message to cook your chicken thoroughly. That’s why I chose 200 °C (400 °F) for 40 minutes. Given the breast has been stuffed with garlic and butter and I’ve added a layer of cheese, it’s important to get the inside to a good high killing temperature.

    1. I reckon some of the sales assistants would know but for some of them I wonder if they’ve ever cooked a meal. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover 😃
