Chicken Kiev

When my husband and I got married over 2 years ago, we had a small, intimate wedding ceremony & reception (with 50 guests), at his parent's home in Santa Rosa, CA (although they have since moved to Georgia). It truly was a lovely wedding and we only planned it in 6 weeks (though nobody believes us)! Everything turned out perfectly. The main course served at our wedding reception was Chicken Kiev. Although there are many variations on preparing this dish, we prefer the baked recipe over the fried recipe. My mother-in-law prepared this dish as a sampler meal, and we fell in love with it. So, on special occasions, or just as a romantic sentiment, my husband & I will have Chicken Kiev to remind us of our first dinner as husband and wife. This works well with any rice, potato or vegetable side dish.
