Whether you're using your kitchen shears to quickly slice up chicken, duck or turkey, or if you're jointing an already roasted piece of poultry, use some hard-wearing and tough kitchen shears for the job. Shears tend to be better at these big food preparation tasks than ordinary kitchen scissors because shears are more robust and heavier-duty. Less effort is needed to cut through tough meat using kitchen shears rather than knives or scissors.
Jointing a raw chicken using poultry shears is the easiest way to chop a whole chicken up before cooking the individual pieces. First of all you can use your poultry shears to remove the legs by making a cut along the backbone and above the oysters. The chicken oyster is the piece of chicken which is oyster shaped and sits at the top of the muscle of the leg. Then, turn over the chicken and cut straight through the leg joints, while turning it outwards to remove them. Take your kitchen shears and cut through the middle joint of the leg and separate the drumstick from the thigh. Take off the chicken breasts by snipping the breastbone down the fat line on both sides of the breast to keep the bone attached for roasting.
