Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

The most economic and efficient way to eat chicken? Buy the whole bird, break it down yourself, and eat it all week long. It’s a lot easier to do than you think; it only requires a sharp knife and a bit of concentration. And once you’ve done it once or twice, you’ll feel like a pro. Use your fingers to feel where bones begin and end and where the joints are; this will help you know where to begin slicing and guarantee you won’t be met by any obstacles once you do. And don’t forget to save the carcass for chicken stock, which freezes excellently for continued use.
