Inspired by the classic Chicken Kiev, these stuffed patties or rissoles are super juicy and explode with flavour when you bite into them. The garlic herb butter not only infuses the meat with flavour but it also keeps it tender and succulent. 

What Is Chicken Kiev? 

Chicken Kiev is a dish close to my Ukrainian heart. Think of it as a rolled chicken schnitzel with garlicky butter inside. It is usually made with chicken fillet pounded and rolled around cold garlic and herb butter, then coated with eggs and bread crumbs, and either fried or baked. You can often buy it pre-made from the deli, butcher or freezer section of the supermarket.

Stuffed Chicken Kiev Patties

My version is a little healthier as it’s not breadcrumbed or deep-fried and I use ground chicken mince to make the stuffed patties rather than chicken breast, so it’s a little more cost-effective too. You can see my step-by-step photos of how to make the patties and how to cook them below the recipe card. 

You can serve these chicken patties with a salad, roasted vegetables, stir-fry, quinoa, rice or potatoes. They are great in a lunch box, I often make a simple cabbage salad or Greek salad to go along with these. Last time, I served them with this cheesy leafy green salad.

How To Make Chicken Kiev Patties

  • Step 1. Prepare the ingredients for the recipe, see the full list above.
  • Step 2. Bring the butter to room temperature, soft enough to mash easily with a fork. Add minced or grated garlic and parsley and mash until smooth and well-mixed. Place the bowl back in the fridge to bring it back to cold and a more solid texture. 
  • Step 3. Mix the ground chicken with salt, pepper and onion powder. Use your hands to combine the mixture. Set aside.

  • Step 4. Make a flat meat patty and place a dollop of cold butter in the middle (about a teaspoon). Fold the patty in half over the butter and join the edges. Then shape into a round shape and flatten slightly. Continue with the remaining mix.

  • Step 5. In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil of choice over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side. As you cook the patties, some of the garlic butter will ooze out into the pan. Use a spoon to baste the meat with the cooking pan juices/fat a few times. 
  • Once golden brown, remove the patties to a plate and let them rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

Make-Ahead Tips

You can make these ahead of time and freeze the pre-made, raw patties to fry later. Make the patties, then place them on a cutting board or a tray that fits inside the freezer. Freeze for an hour or until they are hard enough to touch, then transfer to a Ziplock bag or a freezer container. This way they won’t stick to each other. You can defrost in the fridge overnight and pan-fry according to the recipe instructions.

Learn how to make succulent, juicy, full of flavour Chicken Kiev Patties stuffed with garlic parsley butter. Low-carb, gluten-free, keto chicken recipe. Egg-free and nut-free, too.

Ingredients 

  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 50 g salted butter cut into cubes (2 oz.)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 700 g ground chicken mince, breast & thigh meat if making your own (1.5 lbs.)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Oil for cooking avocado, olive oil, coconut

Instructions

  • Bring the butter to room temperature, soft enough to mash easily with a fork. Add minced or grated garlic and parsley and mash until smooth and well mixed. Place the bowl back in the fridge to bring it back to cold and a more solid texture.
  • Mix the ground chicken with salt, pepper and onion powder in a bowl. Use your hands to combine the mixture. Set aside.
  • Make a flat meat patty and place a dollop of cold butter in the middle (about a teaspoon). Fold the patty in half over the butter and join the edges. Then shape into a round shape and flatten slightly. Continue with the remaining mix.
  • In a large frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil of choice over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side. As you cook the patties, some of the garlic butter will ooze out into the pan. Use a spoon to baste the meat with the cooking pan juices/fat a few times.
  • Once golden brown, remove the patties to a plate and let them rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

Notes

  • You can make these patties using ground turkey meat.
  • If you’re not avoiding flour or breadcrumbs, you can dust the patties in either of those before frying for an extra crunchy crust. Adding some breadcrumbs and a couple of tablespoons of water to the meat mixture will make them even softer.

    Absolutely loved these! I’m part Ukrainian but have only ever made cabbage rolls and pierogi. So my grandmother will be thrilled to hear that I’ve expanded, lol. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

    Saw this pop up today as I was trying to find something different to make for dinner without going to the supermarket. I had some chicken mince in the freezer… perfect! What a flavour bomb on a muggy Friday night with a salad.

    Absolutely delicious and so easy to make compared to the traditional recipe. In fact, I love this so much more! It was a hit, thank you so much!

    I loved making these patties! Ground chicken can be a challenge , but this worked beautifully to add tons of flavor while keeping the chicken moist and juicy. So so good!

  9. 5 stars
    These were fantastic for our family bbq on our deck. Thank you for helping us mix it up from the usual hot dog and burgers.

  10. 5 stars
    These are such a fun and tasty idea – I love the idea of the buttery filling, and stuffing a patty is a lot easier than a whole chicken breast, too, so it’s an easier way to enjoy those flavors.
