TIP: If you can’t find thin-cut chicken breasts, you can substitute 1 to 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins, or make your own fillets from larger breasts. Lay each breast flat on a cutting board, place your hand flat on top of the breast, and, using a chef’s knife parallel to the board, slice the breast starting at the thickest end.
