You’ve had a long week right? You want something simple and tasty on a Friday night after work. Chicken Kiev fits the deal, but what else to have with it?
This is simply putting together items purchased from Coles and cooking them in the oven for an easy and filling dinner.
- 1 Piece Chicken Kiev
- 1 Slice Swiss cheese Place this on the chicken
- 12 Pieces Potato gems (Tater tots)
- 1 Cup Beetroot coleslaw
- 2 Tablespoons Garlic aioli
Put the chicken topped with Swiss cheese along with the potato gems into a large non-stick frying pan and put into a hot (200 °C/400 °F) oven for 40 minutes.
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?
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.
