Buying a whole chicken runs about $1.27/lb. average (in my area) and is much cheaper than buying the parts separately. Breasts are on the average $3.99/lb. and legs/thighs go for $2.19/lb. Don’t get me started on wings! Cray cray on those prices!
We also raise our own meat chickens, and usually leave them whole when we process them. Don’t get me wrong, we like eating whole roasted chicken once in a while, but there are times when I just want hot wings, or to use the breasts for a recipe. So, I cut a lot of them up to use in that manner. Today, I am going to show you how to fabricate a whole chicken for yourself!
