How to Trim Chicken Breast


Chicken is a great lean meat to incorporate into almost any dish involving protein. Before you can incorporate it into your recipe, the chicken breast needs to be trimmed of fat, tendons, and blood. It sounds really gross doesn’t it? It’s not that bad really! When trimming chicken breast, be sure to keep sanitation as a top priority. Uncooked meat contains bacteria and can cross contaminate other foods and surfaces.

Step 1:

  • Get a sharp knife and a large cutting board (the larger the better for sanitation purposes)
  • Remove the chicken breast from the package

  • Start by examining the breast, looking for any white fat that might be clinging to the edges
  • Remove the fat with your knife (watch your fingers!)

  • Examine the rest of the chicken looking for blood spots or large tendons
  • Cut out any blood spots/tendons as needed

  • That’s it! once the breast has been trimmed it is ready to be cooked, diced, sliced, or whatever your recipe calls for
  • After you finish be sure to clean the surfaces of the cutting board, counter, knife, and especially your hands with anti-bacterial soap or disinfectant
