Cooking: Knife Skills - Boning a Chicken (includes a free knife)

Develop the skills to handle a boning knife safely and confidently bone out a whole chicken. You’ll be shown different ways of preparing and using the meat. You’ll receive a Victorinox knife to keep. All ingredients provided.


Once you’ve learned safe knife handling skills, you’ll work in pairs to bone out a whole chicken each.  We’ll cover how to maximise the whole carcass thereby minimising costs and making the most of the meat. We’ll look at the many different uses of products that can be made and you'll take away a quality Victorinox boning knife and will know how to keep it sharp.

All ingredients provided but bring an apron, dish cloth, tea towels and container to take chicken home.  

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Hold and use a knife safely
  • Understand appropriate food hygiene and safety in regards to meat handling and processing
  • Recognise how to look after and sharpen your knife
  • Practise boning out a chicken
  • Identify how to maximise using the whole carcass and all of the meat to make different products
