Deboning chicken Wed, 03/19/08 3:48 PM (permalink)
For the past few years I have been deboning whole chickens. I marinate them afterwards in a gallon plastic bag and place the deboned chicken in a grill basket for easy turning when grilling.
The process is quite simple and the skin-on one-piece result is great for serving. The wings and legs are left on with their bones intact so after cooking I just quarter the bird and serve.So far my favorite is to marinate one in a hot, ground red pepper, paprika, garlic, fenugreek, oil, lemon juice mixture that is salted to taste. Yum! I sometimes do two at once and set one in the freezer for another time.

    This Hawaiian company called NOH makes a Kal-Bi marinade for Korean short ribs. I have used it on chicken and they have turned out great. Partiularly Cornish game hens.

      Trask, any advice on deboning a chicken since it is working out for you?

        I start out by having the chicken turned breast down then I start a cut from head to tail and work the "sharp" knife on one side as close to the bones as possible I cut around the wish bone and through the joints of the wings and legs. Do the same on the other side. You are basically removing the rib cage and backbone while keeping the whole bird intact. Even the tail remains on and the bones are good soup stock. It sure make the chicken easy to grill when using the grill cage and it's fun to do.

          Jacques Pepin can bone out a chicken in 30 seconds.......takes me about 1 1/2 minutes. I like to stuff mine with prosciutto, blanched spinach and Fontina cheese, then I roast it. With the bones and carcass I make a roasted chicken stock. To this I add sauteed morel mushrooms. Then of course, add the juices of the roasted stuffed chicken and supper is on.

            I've seen him do that on TV - it's pretty amazing. I'm handy with a knife in the kitchen, but I will never equal his skill.

              I also seen him in action with Julia. He deboned a turkey with a butchers cleaver and reassembled in no time at all. I keep looking for a rerun of that episode on PBS. I'd like to tape that. Chow Jim

                    Believe it or not, I was at the taping of this episode between Jacques and Julia, it was at Boston College and was titled "Cooking in Concert". I never laughed so hard in my life, they were hilarious! At one point, Julia couldn't figure out how to turn the range on, so she leaned over and said to the audience, "Does anybody know how to turn this DAMNED THING ON???" Jacques did all of the cooking (Julia was up in age at this time) but Julia provided comic relief!

                      Two of my hero's, especially Julia, I miss her. No I never met her, but from the time I was old enough to watch a television, I've been a fan...I miss her.

                        That is so cool! They were two of my favorites when I was learning how to cook.
