Between peices of wax paper, place chicken breast half with smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with remaining chicken. Cut chicken into smaller peices if desired.

In shallow dish, mix flour, cumin and salt. Coat chicken with flour mixture with the exception of 1 teaspoon.
