How to Joint a Chicken
Author: iLU1ZRxcj7M
Sometimes it can be cheaper to buy a whole chicken and joint it yourself, rather than buy chicken joints. All you need is a good, sharp knife and a bit of patience…
  • A Chicken
  1. Remove the legs by cutting down between the leg and body. Locate the ball and socket joint. Put the tip of the knife in the joint and cut through.
  2. Trim off any excess skin from the chicken.
  3. Insert the knife in through the rear of the chicken and place it alongside one side of the backbone. Press down hard to cut through the ribs. Repeat on the other side of the backbone. Cut down either side of the wishbone and remove the backbone.
  4. To remove the breasts, peel off the skin and carefully and slowly slice the breast meat away from the carcass. Start at the bottom and work up.
