1
teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon grated lemon peel
1

  1. Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/2 inch thick. In small bowl, mix Italian seasoning, salt and lemon peel; rub mixture evenly over smooth side of chicken.

Tips
Serve with a garden salad tossed with a light vinaigrette dressing.
Boneless skinless chicken breasts can vary greatly in thickness. Pounding the chicken breasts so they are equal thickness results in more even cooking.
