To save time, many supermarkets sell packages of thin cut, boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s. Otherwise, be sure to pound them a bit to make them thinner.
I’ve combed the supermarket shelves looking for one of the leanest regular bacon choices and Oscar Meyer Center Cut Bacon is my favorite, compared to most regular bacon. It’s much lower in fat and calories, 3 slices contain 70 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. Once cooked on paper towels, most of the fat soaks into the paper, not in the bacon, so the fat is further cut down.
I recently discovered a fantastic, healthier bacon. It’s called Applegate Farms Natural Sunday Bacon. It’s low in fat and calories, uncured and contains no nitrites! Many supermarkets carry this brand. I bought it at Vons/Safeway and Whole Foods. Here’s the link to their website:http://www.applegate.com/products/natural-sunday-bacon
Pound each breast, one at a time, between two sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap. Pound to ½ inch thickness, with something heavy. A meat mallet, if you have it, a big can of tomatoes or a rolling pin. Or for ease, many supermarkets sell packages of thin slices of chicken breasts. I found them at Trader Joe’s. This will save you prep time.
