I usually buy chicken about 1.2 kilograms at a time. I eat half of that in a day. I store the rest in the refrigerator. The usual recipe is breaded chicken and as such, requires pounding the chicken. When done once, pounding chicken isn't that hard or that of a hassle. When done regularly though, I feel that things can be done more efficiently. Is there a problem with pounding chicken at least a day or so before breading and cooking them (such as the chicken easily drying)?

If you cover it well before refrigeration, it should be no problem.


As long as you keep the chicken wrapped up tight there should be no problem. I worked in a kitchen and pounded chicken in batches of 16 or 20, just use plastic wrap when you pound and wrap up the remainder like a burrito.
