    Super quick, super tasty, easy meal for the family on an unseasonably warm April day. All 4 who ate it would definitely eat it again.

    Can I ask a stupid question?? Does the garlic butter still ooze out when you cut into these after cooking for 4 hours?? Or does it come out in the cooking process and become part of the sauce?? My hubby loves the ooze lol.

    I tried this for the first time the other night the whole family loved it, even my fussy children. My father in law was over for dinner too and raved about how nice it was. Thanks Paulene another one to add to our list of favourites ?

    Hubby literally scraped the leftovers from the bowl and ate it directly from the slow cooker!
    A hit with him and 3 out of the 4 kids!

  5. This is the easiest slow cooker meal, YOU’LL EVER MAKE! I used a jar of carbonara sauce from Aldi, crumbed chicken Kiev’s from Woolworths, Bacon, & grated mixed cheese on the top. I popped the cheese on about 10 mins before I turned the slow cooker off. Absolutely delicious

  6. Trying this tonight but i forgot the bacon?, also when recipes are put online can we put what size slow cooker was used. This could go along with cooking time and how many it serves ( just a suggestion)

  7. Beautiful! Tried the Kiev Carbonara tonight, another hit with the family! Followed the recipe and directions exactly. Plates were licked clean and it was requested again for next week!

  8. Made this for dinner had it with mash and vegetables. Was a huge hit with our family will be a regular meal for us

  9. So so easy and so so yummy. Also works out very cheap when my butcher has fresh Kiev’s on special, 4 for $10.
    Will be making this again for sure!

  10. This is one of our favourites! So quick and easy and very yummy! ? I’m going to make it again this week and as I have a spare leek I’m going to slice that and add it! I’ll let you know how that goes!!

  11. Tried this for Valentine’s Day made a couple of changes , cooked carrot rings, sliced onion & tiny button mushrooms, it was very tasty, my partner said he would have it again, leftovers the next day.

    I made this tonight and it was very nice, simple and had great flavour, the family all licked their plates clean!
    I used ham and cheese Kievs, next time I will use traditional garlic kievs as my own preference.

    I was sceptical of this…I LOVE kievs and thought “why change what’s not broken?”..and wasn’t sure about how well a jar sauce would taste with them…oh my was I pleasantly surprised!! absolutely delicious. This will be a regular for sure! 😍

    I was sceptical at first…after all, how could you make kievs taste better than they already are? especially just with a jar sauce and some bacon…but after seeing multiple happy reviews and comments I tried it and was amazed! absolutely delicious and will be making again. yum!

    I did this last weekend, was delicious. I used the Kiev balls from the fresh meat department at woollies and worked really well

    Great tasting and easy to make meal. Felt like a cheat night but tasted way too good to be one the man of the house was super impressed so I will definitely make this again when I’m pressed for time.

  17. Did it twice last week lol. I use the Latina Creamy Carbonara sauce for this. Has leek and bacon in it already. Kids love this so much. Had with caesar salad. Thank you so much for this 💗

    OOHHMMYY this simple but full of deliciousness recipe. Hubby sure did love 💕 it and has asked for it to be a regular on my meal list.
    NOTE: I added my usual 1 teaspoon dried thyme & 1/2 sliced leek. Cook in my 3.5L sc on low for 4 hours.
    I only had 3 chicken kiev so the 3.5.L sc was the perfect size.
    Cheers Jenny P
