This is a presentation of how to pound chicken breast. First, take your full chicken breast and lie it on your cutting board. Next, take your plastic wrap and lie it over your chicken. With your meat mallet, go ahead and start pounding out the chicken, but don't pound it so hard. Be patient. You want to start from the center and work your way out. As you are pounding out the chicken, you want to make sure that you use short even strokes. Be patient because this could take a few minutes, and that is how you pound chicken.
