If you’re new to pounding out chicken breasts, here’s how to do it. Be warned, it’s a pretty noisy business. If you live in an apartment, spare your neighbors by putting a tea towel or silicone mat under your cutting board to muffle the sound.Cover your cutting board with waxed paper.
Lay the chicken breast in the center and cover it with more waxed paper.
Using the smooth side of a tenderizing mallet, starting with the thickest part, bash the chicken breast through the paper with an outward motion. Keep pounding until the breast is about the same thickness throughout, and has spread out enough to doubled in size.
