Of all of the carefully curated recipes in The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook, Chicken Kiev has got to be the one with the most retro caché and and quite possibly the one most worth revisiting.

For the uninitiated, get ready to have your mind blown: This post-World War Two menu staple is a breaded chicken breast wrapped around pats of butter that go molten when the chicken is fried. And it's kind of incredible. If made correctly, the moment you cut into one of these your chicken will begin oozing butter everywhere in a way that makes you wonder why something this delicious ever fell out of fashion.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of 'The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook' to give away.
