Tip

  • Boneless chicken breasts can vary greatly in size. Choose small to medium chicken breasts that are about 4 to 7 ounces in size. If chicken breasts are large, slice them in half horizontally to make thinner cutlets. According to the Amer serving of chicken or meat is about 3 to 4 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards.
