How to Slice Chicken Breast for Stuffing

December 23, 2016

This is a great way of slicing a pocket into the chicken breast in such a way that your filling will not leak out. The key is to use the attached tenderloin as a flap to cover the incision. We'll be using boneless, skinless chicken breasts here.

Step 1

Place the chicken breast upside down such that the tenderloin is facing upwards.

Step 2

Lift the tenderloin up and towards the side, exposing the middle of the chicken breast. Slice an incision, starting from the center line and outwards towards the outer edge of the breast to create a pocket. Do not slice through all the way or else your filling will leak out.
