Chicken Kiev

Seasoned Butter:
1/2 lb softened butter
2 tbls chopped chives
2 tbls chopped parsley
1 tbls lemon juice
1/2 tsp Accent (opt)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp pepper

Chicken Bundles:
4 chicken breasts;  halved, skinned, boned, and pounded flat
8 slices Canadian bacon
8 seasoned butter ball (above)
1 beaten egg (or buttermilk)
5-6 cups crushed Cornflake crumbs 

Prepare seasoned butter ball mixture and divide into 8 equal-sized balls.  For each chicken breast:  place slice of Canadian bacon on breast and top with a butter ball; roll up snugly, tucking in ends.  Dip in egg and roll in cornflake crumbs.  Bake, uncovered, in 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.  Serves 8.   

Freezer Method:  Prepare chicken bundles according to above directions, omitting egg and cornflake crumb steps (will do on serving day).  Wrap each chicken bundle individually in plastic cling wrap, sealing out all air. Place chicken bundles in gallon freezer bag and place cornflake crumbs in quart freezer bag;  attach together and freeze.  Have egg or buttermilk on hand for serving day.

Serving Day:  Thaw chicken bundles 24 hours before preparing.  Unwrap bundles and dip in beaten egg and cornflake crumbs. Bake according to above directions.
