If you love chicken Kiev or stuffed chicken breasts you need to know how to butterfly a chicken breast. It's really easy and quick to learn and then you can cook all your favourite dishes with no problems.

Place the breast on a chopping board and slice into the breast on the thicker side, taking care not to cut all the way through, until you can open it out like a book. Place each opened chicken breast between two sheets of cling film and bash with a rolling pin until flattened. At this point you can stuff with your chosen fillings and fold back together.
