That way things will go quickly and get better. Curious?

Chicken breast can taste boring. There is no doubt. Truth be told, many foods are boring for you do the crucial thing: mix it with something else.

One solution is to make a good sauce, like a really good curry sauce or a classic and delicious barbecue sauce.

Making sauce can be a little stressful for many people. And there’s another fun way out of blandness: spices. Here are some suggestions to spice it up:

  • curry
  • Lemon pepper
  • Tarragon
  • oregano
  • Cumin and coriander
  • Oil with chili and garlic

But spices don’t always work so well on the grill because they burn easily. So I’ve come up with this ingenious (in all its charming modesty) way to add flavor to chicken. It’s also a smart way to season the chicken because then the spice is inside the chicken (you’ll see what I mean in the recipe below).

Here’s a step-by-step explanation:

Place baking paper or food paper on the piece of wood. Place the chicken breast on the paper.

Fold the paper over. Flatten the chicken breast. You can use a hammer, but since the head is a little small, it’s easy to make holes in the chicken breast. A wine bottle can work well (but don’t break it!).

This is what the chicken breast should look like when you’re done pounding it.

Add a good ham (serrano, Parma ham or fena koib, etc.) and a few thick slices of cheese to one side. Season with salt and lemon pepper (or regular pepper).

Break the chicken breast over the ham and cheese. Fold the paper over and pound again until the chicken breast gives and does not “go” when you remove the paper.

Put it on the grill. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side (or until the meat is cooked through)

Then it will look something like this. Serve, for example, with grilled asparagus.
