If you are like me, you don’t like cooking chicken breast with the tendon just hanging out in there. In fact, I have spent years cutting around the tendon in an attempt to remove it, wasting a ton of chicken in the process. So needless to say, this cooking hack below was truly mind blowing to me personally!
A woman on TikTok has gone viral with her chicken-prepping “hack” that involves pulling out the tendon from a chicken breast with one swift movement. All you need is a fork and a little elbow grease.
In the video below, the woman holds up a regular organic chicken breast, pointing out that nasty white tendon that runs through it. The woman threads the end of the tendon between the middle tines of a fork. She then grabs the protruding tab with a paper towel while pushing down on the meat with the fork, thus pulling the tendon out of the tenderloin.
Seriously though…how amazing is this? Like she said in the video, maybe I am late to the game, but this is a game changer in regards to cooking chicken!
