Sous Vide Chicken Kiev

With the Olympics just around the corner, it got me thinking about famous Russian dishes. Chicken Kiev was one of my favorite dishes when I was growing up. Crispy coated chicken with a garlic herb butter oozing from the center, it was always a treat, and a dish that took my mother a lot of time and effort to prepare.
