Chicken in a Bottle 02:23

Find out if the chefs can cleanly remove a whole chicken from a bottle.

When it comes to new ways to make chefs suffer at the hands of the everyday chicken, Alton Brown is somewhat of a master saboteur ( Chicken in a can: Need we say more?). He proved that theory once again on tonight's brand-new episode of Cutthroat Kitchen, putting a chicken in a bottle and forcing one chef to extract it before executing a dish of jerk chicken.

As is the case with every evilicious sabotage, this one was attempted by the Cutthroat culinary crew before it reached Alton's auction table, and just like Chef Guy did on the show, food stylist Hugo Sanchez struggled before finally pulling out the bird piece by piece. "Time to go fishing for chicken," he said, attempting to use a makeshift skewer hook to pry out the meat. Unfortunately for Hugo, though, the bird proved too slippery to stay on the hook, and it sunk back into the bottle, leading Hugo to try the manual approach with "brute force." After losing his grip repeatedly, though, it was time to try a sharper tool: a knife. "I'm just going to start hacking this bad boy away," Hugo confessed. "Maybe shredded jerk chicken it is." He admitted, "There is nothing pretty about this sabotage." But it was nevertheless possible to complete the sabotage within the allotted time — and with favorable results. Click the play button on the video above to watch Hugo's test unfold, and see how he ultimately managed to pry the bird out of the glass bottle.
