How to Cut Up a Whole Chicken September 13, 2013 08:05 2 Comments

Even though chicken is one of the greenest and most economical animial protein sources when my family switched to eating organic meats we wondered if we would be able to afford $6.99/lb for chicken breast. One way we flip the bill is buying whole chickens in bulk at $2.38/lb, and then cutting them up at home. I have tried several ways of cutting up chickens and had it down to under 9 minutes per bird, I came across this video and after a few times had it down to under 5 minutes per bird.
There are a few things that I do differently. I de-bone the chicken breast, Lori likes me to pound these flat for cutlets.
Also, I pull the tenders off the back of the breast to make chicken fingers for the kiddos.
