And you don’t need a super-sharp boning knife to get the job done. You can use everyday kitchen shears. Just remember to “snip it where it bends!” Chef John will show you how to scissor your way through the skin and meat, then when you see the ball joint, simply snip through it with the scissors. Shears work fine here because you’re not really cutting through bone for the most part. You’ll only need a heavy knife for splitting the breast bone. It’s a simple technique.
