Cooking Basics

Chicken meat - how to butterfly

Slice halfway into the center

This is a method for achieving uniform thickness by using a knife to slice open the meat from the center to fold outwards on each side. It allows for the meat to be thoroughly cooked through in less time. Place the chicken meat lengthwise. Use a knife placed along the center line to slice halfway into the thickness.

Lay the knife flat

Within the initial slice, lay the knife flat in order to slice open from both the left and right sides to achieve uniform thickness. This process is made easier if right-handed cooks begin by slicing towards the left, and left-handed cooks begin by slicing towards the right. Then turn the meat end-to-end and repeat this process (slice to the left for right-handed cooks, slice to the right for left-handed cooks).

Once the thickness is uniform, as seen in the image, butterflying is complete.
