Using a filet knife, butterfly the chicken filets. Slice them lengthwise and horizontally through the middle but not all the way through, leaving one side seam intact like a book.

I highly recommend getting a fish filet knife for this. It even slices through frozen chicken. Mine never leaves my kitchen and will never see the inside of a fishing tackle box! This is a must have kitchen accessory for me. Click for a Rada Filet Knife with Leather Scabbard.

Spread the garlic on top of the chicken.
