2. Rinse chicken breasts with cold water, pat dry with paper towels and butterfly (carefully slice each breast in half widthwise, but not all the way through, keep the other edge intact). Open the breast along the "fold" and pound lightly with a meat mallet (I usually cover them with plastic wrap for an easier cleanup).
