Why do you need to flatten the chicken breasts?

Flattening boneless chicken breaks down the fibers between the flesh, making the chicken much more tender. The meat will also cook more evenly than chicken left thick on one end and thin on the other.

How to make Mushroom Swiss Chicken:

Preheat the broiler on high.

Flatten the chicken to about 1/4 inch thickness.

Place the egg in a shallow flat bowl and whisk until combined.
