Chicken Kyiv Cutlet History

Chicken Kyiv is a version of the "Cutlet de Volaille" known at least in the early XX century. Chicken Kyiv recipes are presented in European cookbooks in XIX and early XX centuries.

The origin of the name of the cutlet "Chicken Kyiv" has not been precisely established. The earliest reliable references are in USA in 1937 where in Chicago Restaurant "Yar" the owner Vladimir Yashchenko and chef Michael Thompson offered Chicken Kyiv in the menu for visitors of the restaurant.

Chicken Kyiv appeared in USSR at the latest in 1940. In the 1950s the cutlet was already widely used in Soviet restaurants and the recipe was published in cookbook "Cookery" of 1955. In the same years the dish was widely spread out in USA.

The most likely version of appearance of the cutlet name "Chicken Kyiv" seems to be a version of "Cutlet de Volaille de Kiev" invented in the restaurant of Hotel "Continental" (Arkhitektora Horodetskoho Street, 5) in around 1897. Next the original recipe of Chicken Kyiv transferred by immigrants to United States and after Second World War the name "Chicken Kyiv" spread throughout USSR.

Now tourists could order Chicken Kyiv in restaurants of manu countries of the world and we invite you to taste Chicken Kyiv in Kiev by the original recipe.
