Cooking tips about how to fillet chicken breast 🔎

An experienced person in the kitchen can smile when seeing the title of this video tutorial, but someone who is just starting to learn the secrets of gastronomy will definitely want to know how to cut the whole chicken breast into fillets.

Below are a few cooking tips about how to fillet chicken breast 🔎

If you are going to use a smaller chicken breast (150 g/5.5 oz maximum weigh), cut chicken breast just in two halves, without making fillets.

When you make very thin fillets, they will dry and the grill or schnitzel won’t be juicy at all.

If you fillet turkey breast, cut 3-4 fillets, depending on the breast size. Too thick fillets will cause schnitzel to remain raw inside.

Before grilling or frying a schnitzel, season with salt the chicken or turkey breast fillets and wait for about 30 minutes.

The salt will be absorbed in the meat and the grill, respectively the schnitzel will be much tastier.

Proceed the same with the pepper (I recommend using white pepper) if you want a spicier taste.

Enjoy turkey or chicken breast cutlets!
