Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Substitute
Prepare using boneless skinless chicken thighs.
Tip 2
Serving Suggestion
Serve with hot cooked rice, pasta or potatoes.
Tip 3
How to Pound Meat
To pound chicken breasts, veal cutlets or tenderize beef, place meat in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag, then pound the meat with the side of a heavy can, rolling pin or meat mallet until meat is the desired thickness. The bag will contain the liquids from the meat, minimizing the mess.
