    3. Place a chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap. Pound chicken into an even thickness; place in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Have some leftover bread on your hands? Place slices of leftover bread in a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs are formed. Add the bread crumbs to a skillet over medium-low heat and toast instead of using store-bought bread crumbs.
