If you don't have thin chicken breasts, put one chicken breast between two pieces of waxed or parchment paper, and then go to town with a mallet.  You could use plastic wrap if that's what you have. You could even put the breast in a plastic zip top bag.

And yes there are special kitchen mallets for this. They tend to be broad and flat. The heads are usually at 2 inches by one inch. So if you don't have one, don't panic. You can take your aggression out using

  • Rolling Pin
  • Saucepan
  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Soup Can
  • Mortar
  • Water Bottle

The key is to flatten out the meat. You may end up needing fewer chicken breasts than you thought since they'll be so much larger.

Make It A Meal

This is a great dish to make with asparagus as it goes well with the lemon and Parmesan cheese flavors. If you're low carb or paleo, add in a salad so you get enough food to feel full.

You could also have some crusty bread with this if you are eating bread. Just watch the portions.

This would be a great dish to serve with pasta with a simple herb and butter sauce. If you're going primal, make some zucchini squash noodles or have some spaghetti squash.  You could make an alfredo sauce as well.  You won't need much sauce to feel satisfied. And a little bit of fat works well with helping you feel full and satisfied. Plus we need some fat to absorb all the nutrients in vegetables.
