Turkey Kiev - a classic restaurant favorite gets updated with the use of turkey! Turkey or chicken breast fillets are stuffed with an herbed butter and coated with Japanese breadcrumbs. When the roll is pierced with a fork or cut open, the turkey emits a jet of fragant, melted butter. Fancy and delicious!
