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!

                        Wow, never heard of this cut of chicken. I watched the utube video in this thread and was truely astounded. I asked several of my co-workers whos are from around here and the had never heard of it either. What is it that makes it special?

                          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. :)
