Paleo Chicken Kiev

I saw a Chicken Kiev recipe recently that looked incredible, but almost everything about it wasn’t appropriate for a Paleo lifestyle. I was up for a challenge that day, so I decided to create a Paleo version of Chicken Kiev. It was worth it! I hope you think so too.

Paleo Chicken Kiev


Christine @ onceamonthmeals.com


  • 1 egg, pastured and organic preferred
  • 0.25 cup almond flour
  • 0.5 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 Tablespoons coconut oil, room temperature so it’s soft but still solid
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, free-range, organic preferred


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs. In a second shallow bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, salt, pepper, and onion powder. In a third bowl, combine parsley, garlic, and coconut oil and mix thoroughly. Using a kitchen mallet, pound chicken breasts until thin. Dredge each piece of chicken in eggs mixture and then coat with almond mixture. Divide solid coconut oil mixture according to number of servings, place on chicken breast and roll. Secure with wooden toothpicks. Bake 15-20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

Freezing Directions:

Let cool. Place in freezer bag and freeze. To serve: Thaw and reheat.

Servings: 4

    What can you substitute in place of coconut flour and coconut oil? We have coconut allergies in our family…

    We made this for dinner tonight and it is amazing. Completed with a nice side of brocolli. So glad you added the Paleo menu!

    What about freezing before baking? Would that work, then thaw, bake, and eat? Not a huge fan of reheated meats, tend to dry out.

      I don’t see that being a problem Gina. The “breading” may get a little soggy but it won’t be too bad.
