Since watching Jacques Pepin's video of him deboning out a whole chicken for his Chicken Galantine/Ballotine (which is the number 1 cooking video to watch on Saveur), I've always wanted to see if I could do that too. I mean, he does make it look incredibly easy, and it definitely looks delicious, so why not give it a try?
I admit, I'm not Jacques Pepin, but it really was not hard to debone a whole chicken. I definitely didn't do it as fast or as successfully as Pepin, but it didn't take any more than 10 minutes - thankfully. Give it a try! For 10 minutes, it really does look quite impressive for a dinner party and the likes.
