Prepping your chicken before you start cooking it has never been easier. Mandy Klentz, aka Raising Krazies, showed us how to easily remove the yucky white bits (the tendons, for you Smart Pandas out there) from a piece of chicken breast in a viral TikTok video.
According to Mandy, all you have to do is stick the tendon through the middle of the fork, grab the end of the white bit with a paper towel with your other hand and then pull. The nasty white stuff pulls out off the chicken breast in one fell swoop. No mess, no fuss. And your chicken’s ready for cooking!
While I’m pretty sure that some people were aware of this neat trick, I was genuinely blown away. I always had a hard time getting rid of the tendons—I’d spend ten minutes trying to cut the tendons out with a knife. Then, I’d give up and cook the chickens with the tendons like a barbarian. Well, thanks to Mandy, more of us are going to be eating chicken this week—the right way.
