Steps on how to debone a chicken

Slicing a chicken apart is difficult without a good sharp knife. It is worthwhile investing in a set of good knifes such as Global/ zwilling heckles.

Debone Chicken

Starting off with the chicken on a chopping board designated for cutting cooked items.

Start off by separating off the chicken legs

Separate off the chicken wings next

Then the chicken wing legs on both sides.

Then separate the chicken thighs next. Separate at the joint first before slowly pulling on the meat. The meat will come off the bone gently.

Then debone the thigh. I start by dividing it in the middle then slowly taking the meat off the bone in an anticlockwise direction.

After that, I turn the deboned chicken skin side up.

Slice it up and put them into a plate. (some people tend to smash the meat to release the juices before slicing it.)

Debone the chicken legs next. I tend to slice round the tendons at the other end. Then divide the middle and slice the meat off the bone in an anticlockwise direction again. Slice it into pieces. Arrange on a plate.

Separate the other piece of thigh off the bone. you can see how clean the meat comes off the bone if you gently pull on it. All you have to do is separate the joint first.

Lastly the chicken breast. Divide it in the middle at the breast joint.

Separate one side of the breast meat off the bone.

After you have the breast meat, separate it again into 2 like the picture.

Now you have two pieces of breast meat after separating it apart.

Slice the breast meat. (Like I said, some smash it with a heavy knife to release the juices before slicing it. I don’t tend to do that because it can be quite messy with juices splattering all over my kitchen).

Take the other side of the breast meat off the bone.

Slice the breast meat and put everything on a plate.

And you have finally successfully completed the task!

Slice some spring onions to enhance the presentation of the chicken.

viola! Looks too good to be eaten!
