Butchering A Chicken - A How To Video

This video from the youtube channel Podchef has to one of the best videos of breaking down a whole chicken from a first person POV that I've seen.  I've been meaning/wanting to do a similar video myself as I couldn't find anything that correctly expressed how really easy this process is and how much cash you can save.

Besides from being an excellent how to video, the other main point, while subtle, is the use of a very, very sharp knife. As we all know most accidents occur in the kitchen not because of sharp knives but because of dull ones.  Never force a dull knife, a sharp one should be near effortless while its doing its work.  This process can be accomplished with most knife styles however with that said the use of a stiff or semi flexible boning knife will also aid in the removal of meat from the carcass.

After watching this you'll become an old pro at breaking down a chicken into its various components and will save a boat load of cash and feed your family, friends, and yourself.  Not to mention have bones for stock, strips for stir-fry or nuggets for the kiddies, as well as legs and wings for various other dishes such as "Coq au Vin"

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by!

POPUP SHOP - Modo Mochi Donut @ Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose

$20 for a dozen!!! (other food, and tax/tip not included) People have lost their damn minds once again in the "craze" of these Hawaiian Mochi Donuts!  We arrived after lunch at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose off Saratoga Ave.  The line was out the door! My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.   OMG! No frick'n way!!!   No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.    Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy go
