Watch How To Make Chicken Kiev Sauce

Start off with three teaspoons of butter in a pan. Heat that till it melts, then add a half of diced white and cook till they are translucent. You want them to get good and caramelized. The butter and the cooked onions will bring out a nice sweetness.

Then put in your chopped garlic cloves and chopped scallions to let them cook for about three to five minutes more. Be sure to salt and pepper to taste.

Now add ¾ cup of wine and let it simmer so that it reduces a bit, but not completely. It is still intended to be a sauce to pour over the chicken so if it evaporates too much just add a bit more wine and butter.

You can then pour about two tablespoons over each piece and return the partially cooked chicken kiev to the oven to bake it again at about 400° for 15 minutes. When you are ready to serve, you can even add a little more sauce to the top.
