Go into any kitchen store and there are rows and rows of gadgets used for just about anything you can imagine. Some are worth the money and some are definitely not. Trust me; I have a few of those that are definitely not. So, when you find a product that does what it says, it’s refreshing.
With that said, one of the “must have” kitchen items is a meat tenderizer, especially if you are making chicken cutlets. If the chicken is thick and tough it not only tastes bad, it takes longer to cook and can burn in the pan.
Chicken is usually a bit thick when you take it out of the package.
So, I tried out the Meat Tenderizer Mallet from Cave Man Tools to see if it would make my chicken cutlets thinner and easier to cook.
After just a few uses, I could tell the chicken was thinner than other times when I cooked it without using the mallet. It was thinner and easier to bread and fry. The chicken cooked faster without burning.
Once it was cooked, it was also easier to cut up for my kids to eat. Many kids (at least mine!) tend to shy away from meat when it is too thick for them to chew. This benefit alone is worth it!
If you want to try the Meat Tenderizer Mallet for yourself, here’s your chance. The Mommy Rundown is hosting a giveaway for one of these mallets from Cave Man Tools. Giveaway ends April 15, 2015 at midnight!
