Boning a Split Chicken Breast
Buying bone-in chicken breasts, and then removing the bones at home, is often the only option when your recipe requires boneless chicken breasts with skin intact. Here's an easy way to bone them.
Why would you want to bone chicken breasts when they’re available in every supermarket already boned? Answer: Because you want to cook boneless breasts with skin (which are far harder to find). In our recipe for crispy-skinned chicken breasts (see related content), removing the bones allows the entire surface of the meat to lie flat and even against the pan—a must for perfectly crispy skin.
