Every generation produces someone, a great thinker who changes the course of history for the better. 

Newton, Curie, Einstein, Hawking, Berners-Lee - the world simply wouldn’t be the place it is today without them - and now we can add @nefyn92 to that list. 

Nefyn has been branded a genius after taking to Twitter to post his clever cooking hack involving Chicken Kievs and garlic bread...


There’s nothing more irritating then taking your delicious golden crispy Kievs out of the oven to find that the best bit - the garlic butter - is now all over your baking tray, leaving you with both a hollow Kiev and a hollow feeling in your soul.  

Well, no more! Nefyn shared a photo of a couple of chicken kievs sitting proudly on two slices of bread, with the caption: "Life hack - put bread under kievs to capture garlic butter leakage and make garlic bread.”

He goes on to say: “This was after 20 minutes. I guess because it's in an oven and not a grill it doesn't burn."

And it seems like people have been pretty blown away, with the tweet racking up an almighty 20k likes at the time of writing as well as loads of comments from people thanking him for the pro tip. 

One person replied: "This is genius; garlic butter leakage is a travesty of our time.”

Another asked: "I'm 45 years old. Why have you waited until now to deliver this life changer? Where have you been?"

Other people were also quick to put forward their own Kiev-advice with one person encouraging Nefyn to add some cheese to the bread too and someone else saying they pour the leaked butter over mashed potato to create buttery garlicy mash. 

In other excellent food-hack news, a few months back a woman came up with a Domino’s tip to bag yourself a giant garlic pizza breadth just one simple change. 

Taking to Twitter Lauren Faulkner wrote: "The mini garlic pizza bread from Domino's is the best thing on menu hands down and I only just realised you can add garlic butter to a margarita and just get a massive one, I'm so happy."

Again, genius.
