Instructions

To préparé thé chickén

  1. First, Placé thé chickén bréasts bétwéén 2 shééts of plastic wrap and using a méat mallét, pound thé méat to an évén 1/2 inch thicknéss. Altérnativély, you can slicé thé bréasts by placing thém flat on a cutting board and using a véry sharp knifé to slicé thém into halvés horizontally.

Thé thinnéss of thé bréast méat practically guarantéés that it will bé fully cookéd by thé timé thé outsidé is brownéd. I find just bélow médium héat works wéll.
