Tenderizing A Chicken Breast

Depending on size of each piece of chicken or  a specific recipe, there may be times when you have to use a meat mallet or heavy rolling-pin to flatten chicken breast to even it out.


You always want to put a piece of wax paper or clear plastic wrap between you and the chicken.



Starting in the center and working out to the edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet or rolling-pin until the chicken is even in thickness.



Lightly hit the upper and larger part of the breast until it is the same size from top to bottom.









If you have a recipe that calls for the breast to be butterflied this method will insure that both the stuffing/filling and chicken breast will cook evenly.




About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
