    I loved the video. My dad taught me how to cut up a chicken when I was little. I like the way you do the breast meat. It is different than how I do it, it looks much easier your way. I LOVE the sharp knife :).

    Dana, I dig this because its way cheaper to buy a whole chicken! But how do I know what kind og knife to buy? If you already say in the video, no worries. I’ve book raked it to try next time I go to the grocery store.

      You just need a boning knife, it will be labeled at the store. It’s thinner and more flexible to get in the joints!

    What a helpful video! I have to admit my usual method is hack until some pieces come away…not so awesome.

    I need to pin this. Usually I just roast a chicken and then use the meat in various ways and cook the bones for broth.
    Thanks for sharing at Monday Funday Link Party!
    Hope your week is extraordinary!
