How to Break Down a Whole Cooked Chicken
Learning to break down a whole roasted chicken can help you create several different dinner options and save you time and money.
What you'll need:
- Whole roasted chicken
- Cutting board
- Kitchen shears
- Put your whole roasted chicken breast-side up on a cutting board and snip off the trussing string with kitchen shears.
- With the shears, cut where the chicken self separates first (thighs and legs), then pull them out of the joint.
- Turn the chicken breast-side down. Cut out the backbone and open up the breast plate. Pop out the center bone and peel out the breast plate and cartilage.
- Separate the chicken breasts and cut them into thirds with the shears.
- Snip off the chicken wings (and tips) and separate them.
- Separate the chicken drumsticks from the thighs.
- Save the chicken carcass and bones for a homemade chicken stock.
