Buying and using chicken breasts

Smart Shopping: Buying and Using Chicken Breasts

No Waste and it Cooks in Minutes!

  • At $3 per pound, a standard 2 to 3 ounce serving only costs 50 cents.
  • One pound of chicken breast (two half-breast pieces) provides enough protein for six servings.
  • Chicken breast absorbs the great flavors of fruit and vegetable sauces.

Cutting Chicken Breast…
Cutlets for six

  • Trim visible fat. Make two cuts with a knife so pieces are about the same thickness. Make the first cut across the narrow, thin side of the breast. Make the second cut through lengthwise on the thicker portion.
  • Repeat the process for the second half-breast.
  • For stir-fry. Slice each cutlet across into ½ inch strips.
