  I want it to be very, very lean.

Hear the storyline. Michelle is preparing dinner.  She asks John for help....
Michelle: John, can you do me a favor?  Can you help me cut this chicken?
John: At your service.  How do you want me to cut it?
Michelle: I would like half of it cut into slices, and the other half diced.
John: OK.  Half sliced and the other half diced.
Michelle: Oh, by the way, I want it to be very, very lean.  Not even a shred of fat. 
John: Got'cha.  Cut off the fat.
