How to Cut a Whole Chicken is probably one of the essential kitchen skills that everyone should know. Not only is is super fast, and super easy, it will also save you money, a lot of money. I bought this whole chicken at my local grocery store for $3.50 and cut it myself. What I got was 10 pieces of chicken and a large pot of chicken broth to save for a soup recipe later down the road. Buying 10 pieces of pre-cut chicken and 3 or 4 cans of broth would easily cost more than triple. Not only is it a great way to save money, but cutting a whole chicken only takes about five minutes, or less if you're good.
