STEP 1: 
Butterfly
Place chicken breast on cutting board. Place hand flat on top of breast. Use sharp knife to slice into one side of breast, starting at thicker end and ending at thin point. Be careful not to cut all the way through to other side. Open breast so it looks like a butterfly. Cover breast with plastic wrap and pound with meat pounder or rolling pin to create even thickness. Slice in half lengthwise to create two equal pieces of chicken breast. Repeat with second breast.
