Essential Sports Nutrition What you need to do:

  • Place a chicken breast between 2 sheets of cling film. Use a meat mallet, or rolling pin, to gently pound the chicken until it is approximately 1.5cm thick. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Heat 1/4 of the butter in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the chicken. Cook for 4 minutes each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the remaining butter to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the butter melts and turns a golden brown color.
