    Lol...good luck finding Chicken Kiev outside the Midwest. It's pretty easy to find at restaurants in Chicago, for example -- but I've never seen it anywhere in California. Didn't it go out of style about 60 years ago?

      It's on the menu at Cinderella.

        I stand corrected...but where is Cinderella?

        I'm pleased to see that at least one cook doesn't fear butter-infused chicken.

          Balboa between 5th & 6th in SF.

        Or you can try Katia's, just down the block from Cinderella. I think they have a version made with ground chicken.

          I haven't had Katia's version but the classic Russian ground chicken dish is Kotlety Pozharsky; I think it has to be made with chicken breast to qualify as Kiev.

          You might try the frozen food section at your favorite grocery store. Didn't Stouffers used to make something like that.

            You want to be careful with dishes like Chicken Kiev & Chicken Cordon Bleu (probably by avoiding them altogether). Many restaurants will heat up frozen ones. My late stepfather was in the prime meats business for the hotel & restaurant trade, and many of the same places that would buy quality meat would buy this kind of garbage for the suckers who wanted to order them.
