A chef’s knife is a versatile all-purpose kitchen knife that can be used for chopping, slicing, and mincing. It is usually between 8 and 10 inches long, with a broad, round blade. The chef’s knife is the most important tool in your kitchen, so it is important to choose one that feels comfortable in your hand and is the right size for your needs.
When cutting chicken breasts into strips, you will want to use a sharp knife. A dull knife will not only make the job more difficult, but it can also be dangerous. Always use a cutting board when slicing or chopping chicken breasts, and be sure to cut away from your body. Start by slicing the chicken breast in half horizontally, then cut each half into strips. You can make the strips as thick or thin as you like.
The cutting board is one of the most important pieces of equipment in any kitchen, and it’s especially important when you’re working with chicken. A good cutting board will be large enough to give you plenty of space to work, and it will be made of a material that won’t dull your knives. Wood and bamboo are good choices, but plastic is also an option.
Preparing the Chicken
Rinse chicken breasts under cold water
Rinse chicken breasts under cold water, then pat them dry with paper towels. Place chicken breasts on a cutting board, and use a sharp knife to cut the chicken into thin strips. Try to make the strips as uniform in thickness as possible so that they will cook evenly.
Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels
Pat chicken breasts dry with paper towels. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently flatten chicken to even ½-inch thickness. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs and milk. In another shallow dish, mix together panko bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, and garlic powder.
Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere.
Place chicken on a wire rack set over a baking sheet; let stand for at least 10 minutes (and up to 1 hour) to help breading adhere.
Cutting the Chicken
To cut the chicken breasts into strips, start by cutting off any excess fat. Cut the chicken breast in half horizontally, then slice it vertically into thin strips. To get even strips, you can use a guide, such as a ruler. If you want to cut the chicken into smaller strips, you can do so by cutting it into thin slices.
Place chicken breast on cutting board
Place chicken breast on a cutting board, so that the long side is facing you. Use a sharp knife to make a long, shallow cut down the center of the chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through. Open up the chicken breast like a book. Place your hand on top of the chicken to keep it from moving, and use a sharp knife to make 1-inch cuts perpendicular to the first cut, slicing the chicken into strips.
Point knife towards center of chicken breast
To cut chicken breasts into strips, start by placing the chicken breast on a cutting board. Then, point the knife towards the center of the chicken breast and make long, even cuts parallel to the board. For thinner strips, make 1-2 cuts. For thicker strips, make 3-4 cuts. Once you’ve cut as many strips as you need, transfer them to a plate or bowl and enjoy!
Slice chicken breast into strips
Cutting chicken into strips is a great way to create quick and easy meals. Whether you are making chicken Parmesan, chicken fajitas, or simply want to cut your cooking time down, this method is for you. With a few simple steps, you can have chicken strips that are perfect for any dish.
To start, cut the chicken breast into even slices. For best results, use a sharp knife and make sure all of the slices are the same thickness. If they are not, the chicken will cook unevenly and some strips will be overcooked while others will be undercooked.
Next, cut each slice of chicken breast into strips. Again, make sure they are all even in size so they will cook evenly. You can make the strips as thin or thick as you like; just keep in mind that thinner strips will cook more quickly than thicker ones.
Once your chicken strips are cut, you can cook them any way you like. For a quick and easy meal, try sautéing them in a little olive oil or butter until they are golden brown and cooked through. You could also bake or grill them; just be sure to watch them carefully so they don’t overcook.
Serving the Chicken
For this recipe, you’ll want to start with two boneless, skinless chicken breasts. If they’re very thick, you can butterfly them by slicing them horizontally almost all the way through, then opening them up so they lie flat. Then, cut the chicken into strips that are about 1-inch wide. You can make them as thick or thin as you’d like.
Serve chicken strips with your favorite dipping sauce
Assuming you have already cooked the chicken breasts, you will want to let them cool slightly before cutting them into strips. This will make the process much easier and prevent you from burning yourself.
Once the chicken breasts are cooled, place them on a cutting board and slice them horizontally into thin strips. Try to make the strips as even as possible so that they will cook evenly.
Once all of the chicken breasts have been cut into strips, it’s time to start cooking! You can either pan-fry the chicken strips in a little oil, or bake them in the oven. Pan-frying will give the chicken a nice crispy exterior, while baking will be a healthier option.
If pan-frying, heat up a little oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken strips to the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
