Well I first realized I could pound a chicken breast after seeing a demo on the the TV show 'the biggest loser'. But this is not a low fat recipe. I have been waiting to try this technique and had bought a "pounder" back in May at Ikea. I had yet to use it till tonight. It was a lot of fun. I rarely (never) cook chicken but I will be making this again. My husband and I loved it. I bought organic chicken breasts, which are more expensive. However compared to the nine dollars I spent for a single lunch a Burgerville this afternoon, makes them seem like a bargain in comparison.

I always forget to take a picture of my food until it is too late(we ate it all).
