Cutting up a Chicken: It’s Easy

Paul with chicken


You probably know that Harlow Farm raises its own free-range chickens, and that we sell whole chickens, fresh or frozen, at the farmstand. What you, like many of us, may not know is how to cut a chicken into parts. Sure, a whole chicken is fine for roasting. But if you want pieces for the grill or the skillet, with the carcass left over for soup or stock, it requires cutting. That can be a bit daunting. So, how to cut a chicken into parts with ease and skill?

Paul Harlow’s daughter Hannah asked him that very question and, since she’s away at school, Paul showed her how to do it by video. We share it with you here.
