Bernard Matthews Mini Kievs
We have over 500 air fryer recipes for beginners on Recipe This and out of those I would say that 100 of them are not homemade.
I am a homemade cook and love cooking. I make my own instant pot veggie stock from vegetable peelings, love to make slow cooker stews like our slow cooker lamb stew and dumplings and nothing makes me happier than baking some air fryer homemade scones.
Back in 2015 I went totally homemade and embraced the Paleo lifestyle and also completed several rounds of the Whole30.
But of course, running Recipe This we get a lot of requests for different types of recipes. One type is frozen food in the air fryer and our readers love us showing them how to do the frozen foods.
But whilst I don’t care for most of it, there is a handful of air fryer frozen food that I have grown to love. The first is air fryer frozen boneless wings. Something I had never tried before but can never get enough of. Second is Bernard Matthews Mini Kievs a favourite food from childhood and even better cooked in the air fryer. Then third on the last is the mini kievs older brother and that is the wonderful air fryer frozen chicken kievs.

Mini Kievs are a delicious turkey ball with a creamy centre. The creamy centre is made with a cheese and garlic sauce. Its like heaven and often compared to chicken kievs but a smaller version.
Imagine air fryer popcorn chicken but you can add a cheesy garlic centre to the middle and swap chicken for turkey.
Or many also refer to them as mini kiev balls.
