You too can bone a chicken

Supermarket chicken comes pumped up with water, stabilizers, antibiotics and god knows what else. It also comes cheap, and sometimes with the bones magically removed. This bone issue is one I hadn’t really thought through.

Happily, the internet is filled with instructional videos:

And you know what? It’s not that hard. Even with an Ikea paring knife. Cutting the meat away is a breeze, and when you get the bones mostly out, you pull them up in a sort of V shape – I liked to think the chicken was telling me victory was almost at hand. Then all you have to do is cut the joint away from the meat, which is a bit of a pain.

I even saved the bones to make a stock. I’m learning!
