Video: How to Quarter a Chicken

I’m all about cooking with economy, finding ways to do more with less, save scraps and turn them into something delicious, and channel the inner pioneer in you. Buying a whole bird is way more economical than buying its parts. Plus you get the carcass left over to use for delicious soup or stock. In this How to Quarter a Chicken video, the latest episode of my YouTube series, I take you through the process.

Try going for a whole bird next time you’re in the meat aisle!

Enjoy, my friends.

How to Quarter a Chicken:

Master these few steps to quarter your own chicken and you will stretch your dollars much further. You can cook these parts all at once, or you can wrap the meat properly and store it in the freezer for up to 9 months. If you want to see a visual step-by-step you can visit this blog post.

    Thanks for the demo, I noted some tricks I have not done before with a whole bird. So, I am wondering how one goes about de-boning a bird? It seems like a tricky operation but I imagine there are some professional tricks that make it easier.

    My husband and I were just talking about cutting up chicken the other night. After he butchered, figuratively speaking, our beer can chicken, and complained about not know how to cut up a chicken. I think I’ll have him watch this:) It’s much better than I explained it!
