I found this bone-in chicken breast on sale for 1.69 per pound but I knew I was going to turn it into something a bit more interesting with a little work I will turn this one piece into 4 slices of skinless chicken breasts.

First I removed the wing and set it on the side.

Remove the wing and skin. Set it on the side.

    The chicken breast was so big that I was able to cut a big piece off, later I locate the small flap of meat attached to the bond. Carefully sever it, using a small, sharp boning knife to slice it off.
