Knowing how to cut up a chicken is a fundamental kitchen skill. Sure, you can buy chicken in pieces, but you pay more per kilo to have someone else do very easy work you can do yourself. For me, buying a whole chicken is useful as you can create so many dishes out of one product.

The process is actually really easy, and once you get used to it, it’ll only take you a few minutes to cut up and prepare an entire chicken into multiple pieces, ready for individual cooking or freezing. Another good reason to cut up your own chickens is that you come away with the backbone, which is perfect for making stocks, asian soups or even to flavour Asian rice porridge or congee.
