It's easy to buy store-bought chicken cutlets (usually labeled "thin-cut breast"), but you pay a premium because the butcher department does all the work for you. Follow these steps to make your own cutlets and save yourself money!

chicken 1

Place a skinless, boneless chicken breast on a cutting board and, using a long, sharp knife, slice horizontally into the thicker side of the breast.

chicken 2

As you cut, open the breast a bit to check your progress, then keep cutting until you've reached the other side.

chicken 3

Voila: two flat chicken cutlets.
