To me, this was always my favorite cut.  I wish they were still available in bulk packages like they used to be.

What in the world is a pulley bone?

That cut has to be done with a knife and is unfortunately a diminishing skill.

Fully agree - the rest of the chicken is OK, at best.  
 
I'd settle for just some chicken backs to make soup stock.

Personally, I'm a thigh man.  We're still talkin' about chickens here, right?

Hollyhock Hill in Indianapolis still serves its fried chicken with a piece cut with a pulley bone.  It is the way my mother used to cut up chicken for frying, and it is far and away my favorite part of a fried chicken dinner.

Yes, rumaki--my mother did, too!  It was my favorite, and I always got it--we called it the wishbone, though.

I'd never heard of pulley bones until I found them at Shealy's in Batesburg, SC and then wrote this review.  As soon as you sit down, a waitress comes by and asks how many pulley bones you want for the table.  How cool is that!    Chris

As my students would say, it's "way cool"!
 
love2bake:  My family called them wishbones, too.  I never heard the pulley bone term until we went to the late-lamented Laughners cafeterias in Indianapolis, where they also served pan-fried chicken cut that way. You could order by the piece, and if you wanted the wishbone, you asked for a "pulley bone."  I usually had a pulley bone and two wings.
 
I miss Laughners!

After further investigation (google is your freind) it seems that this was the olden time way of getting ten peices out of a chicken including the wings. Never to old to learn, I am.

Always my favorite when I was a kid, Mom could get it right everytime. Some places called the "center breast". I am am successful only about 1 in 10 when trying to get this cut myself.

brisketboy :  I can only say that it was the way my mom cut it -- but nowadays,  I find it more aethetically pleasing.  The cut results in a pillow-like piece of chicken that I prefer to splitting the breast in half the long way.  Plus, you get to play with the intact wishbone afterward.

I had never heard of it so I watched the video.  Very interesting.  I may try it one day to see just how delectable this piece is.

As a finicky kid (okay--I'm still like this) I was freaked out by blood vessels in chicken, and there's nothing objectionable in the wishbone piece.  Plus it doesn't resemble any body part. :)
