Red Pesto & Soft Cheese Stuffed Chicken Kiev
This is too good to be true. Find decadence and delight in this low-calorie chicken recipe!
Taking a classic Chicken Kiev technique and playing around with the stuffing inside is one of the joys of making your own. Traditional garlic/parsley butter can be replaced with... well, just about anything you like. By coating with Lo-Dough's Southern Style Coating you are reducing the carbs, upping the fibre and using a product designed to be baked, rather than the traditional fried recipe, saving on fat and grease too.
Trust us... you're gonna love this one: oozy soft cheese, garlicky and tomatoey red pesto - its an absolute flavour bomb!
Lo-DoughSouthern Style Coating (enough to double coat one piece of chicken)
- 1 large skinless chicken breast
