A true keto kiev that has been developed with the love of a kiev and the devotion to the keto lifestyle.

After recently been given the mighty task to take on a bit of a famous kiev I decided to create this recipe first.  A true keto kiev that is packed with flavour.  That is what everyone wants right?  A simple recipe, easy to recreate, easy to source ingredients, and fabulously easy cooking method.  Easy and flavoursome is my thing right?

This recipe delivers on what was asked.  I am so happy with the outcome and ease of creation that I have already made a few variations with Indian Pakora style. I am soooo going to being releasing some new recipes along this vein because trust me….FLAVOUR EXPLOSIONS!

These kievs are made bite size as a beautiful starter for a celebrational dinner, entertaining, a canape for a party or to be served with a gin cocktail…what am I saying..this is a recipe that is so versatile that you could serve in the lunchbox, on a wrap, or on its own for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Variations

As previously referred to and Indian style filled pakora is delicious, but so is any other meat filled with the flavoured butter, or change the butter to ham and cheese, cream cheese and jalapeno, or whatever floats your boat.  Variations galore!  I will come up with so many more because this recipe has left me quite enchanted!

Recipe Notes

This is a great recipe that can be used for lunch boxes, dinner, appetisers, and fabulous for entertaining.

This recipe can be made ahead and frozen raw.

The chicken can be substituted for any other meat or seafood.

The butter can also be changed and flavoured with your own choices of additions.  Chilli would be fabulous.  It could also be swapped for a cream based sauce frozen before being placed inside chicken mince.

This recipe could also be made into 2 large kievs, just ensure you cook for the same time and bake at 180℃ for a further 10 minutes.

I use Poppa Porkys rinds that are cooked in lard with no additives or preservatives. www.poppaporkys.com.au

  1. I must say these chicken Kiev bites are packed full of flavour. We had them as a main meal with some stir fried greens. They reheated really well from frozen for a quick lunch and were also great cold as a lunch box snack. The citrus garlic butter was great as an extra sauce for dipping. The pork rinds really make these super crunchy. A delicious winner in our house

  2. Oh my – Megan, you are a goddess. These are fantastic. I fried them in a little bit of coconut oil and served with salad. New favourite. I even went and bought an air-fryer – seriously good idea. 15 mins, no turning and taste amazing! At the request of family members, I have made these about 3 times and they taste really good. Looking forward to trying some of the recipes from Close to Zero in the air-fryer!

    1. Awesome! Thanks Janet

  3. I’m just saying hello. We are “almost” neighbours. I live at Redhead. I think this is the first time I’ve been on your website and this recipe sounds great. Must try it.
