Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

Because of COVID-19 and stay-at-home orders, more people than ever are cooking at home. While cooking at home can be fun, it can come with all sorts of dilemmas and surprises. For example, have you ever spent time cooking raw meat? It can be a major pain in the butt. You need to be practicing proper food safety and making sure that the meat is properly seasoned before you get started.

In addition to these types of concerns, it can be tough to get rid of the unusable parts of your chicken breast tenderloins. You know exactly what we are talking about, right? They are the little white pieces in each slab of chicken that we certainly don’t want to eat! Fortunately, one TikTok user is here to help us out. Thanks to this hack that they shared, you are going to be able to remove those unwanted tendons more quickly than ever before.

raising_krazies is the TikTok user that has decided to walk us all through this wonderful hack. If you do not know what chicken tendons look like, they resemble paper tabs. Be sure to look at the top of the breast to spot them. Once you have identified these tendons, you will know them every time that you see them. We must warn you ahead of time, though, this is not the most pleasant hack to look at.

It works wonders, though. The cooking process is simplified when you follow the simple instructions that raising_krazies lays out for you in the video. All you need to do is grab a fork from the kitchen and poke it around the unsightly tendon. Once the fork has slipped through the tendon, grab it by the other end and pull it right out. The process is really that easy, we promise.

If you would like to learn more about the ins and outs of this “surgical procedure,” you’ll want to take a moment to check out the aforementioned TikTok for yourself. People all over the world are already expressing their appreciation to raising_krazies.
