How To Carve A Chicken, The Gordon Ramsay’s Style

We don’t know about you but we’re in love with Gordon Ramsay’s cooking and prepping style. That’s why we decided to make a video following his advice on how to joint a chicken with the most important tip being, let the good, sharp knife do the work.

  1. Spread the chicken’s legs and pierce the skin between the leg and the breast.
  2. Pull the leg back with your hand on top of the breast to keep it steady.
  3. Pop the bone out of the joint and then slice through.
  4. Repeat the same with the other leg.
  5. Locate the knuckle between the drum and the thigh, then slice through.
  6. Scrape the tendons off the leg’s bone and chop the end off.
  7. Keep the knuckles for stock.
  8. Pull the wings out, feel for the joint and slice through.
  9. Do the same with both wings.
  10. For the breasts slice down and cut through for a clean cut, not around the wishbone.
  11. Repeat the same on the other side.
