    Ok I am getting into the cooking thing and have been pounding out my chicken breasts before grilling them. What is the best covering to use to prevent it from going everywere. I have tried foil but it dont last to long what do you all think????

    I just use the regular plastic wrap, double up if you have to, and pound with the flat side of the meat tenderizer. I slice the chicken breast into thin slices before pounding.

    Wax paper, two sheets, top and bottom. SMOOTH faced mallet, not jagged.

    I use wax paper too.

    I use a rubber mallet I got at Lowe's hardware or a cast iron pan ;)

    Plastic wrap moistened with a couple of drops of water, so that it doesn't stick to the chicken, causing it to tear, when you pound it. (the chicken that is)

    Back when I worked in restaurants, it was always plastic wrap, unless it was being breaded. When breading it I would flatten it out in the crumbs/ flour.
