Chris Carves a Roast Chicken | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit



  • Probably best to make sure the chicken is cooked properly first.

  • That chickens back is actually cooked. How do I cook my chickens back? 😅

    Lu Dennis 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • theres too much blood in that chicken !!

  • Thank you so much, kind Sir. You made this simple and easy; and in almost exactly 3 minutes. Most people on YouTube take that long just to get past their "introduction" and explaining what they are going to do; before actually start.

    May Jesus bless you and yours, always.

  • You are going to kill some one. Serving. A chicken. That is not fully cooked. Look at all pieces they have a raw. Part. Go back to cooking school.

  • The way you explain it makes it really easy. I carved a few chickens before and ended up with a mess and strings of meat all over. This method is clean and precise. Thank you kind sir!

  • Make sure chicken is done before carving…

  • Humans are barbaric, including me. And Disney is heavily involved in child trafficking. Disney cruises went to Epstein Island. (Because Disney sponsored this.)

  • The camera angles weren’t super helpful.

  • Gordon Ramsay: It's raaaaaw you donkey.

  • Why do I see blood

    pure imagination 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • Is there a way to cut chicken without losing all that delicious juice?

    Nick W. 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • I started to cut the chicken and by the time I finished I had somehow ended up with a pot of chili instead. Any idea on where I went wrong?

    Dave Lawlis 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • you must be using the world's sharpest knife or something

    Searson 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • Best carving instruction yet. Good job

    James Wright 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • That's why you remove the wish bone before you cook it.

    E Z 22/10/2022 pm6:35

    snusmumriken232 22/10/2022 pm6:35

  • Glad I'm not the only one stuck with bloody joints! He just kinda ignored that, didn't he? So will I.

    Paul Just Paul 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • But it’s even if you let it rest. How are you serving it s good temp? Burning your hands?

    Lauren Temmler 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • this is so well done, no meat is wasted

    Solo5MiiLy 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • This helped me significantly!! Before, I had been cutting down the middle of breast first.

    I still struggled with my wings but, overall the process was a breeze.

    Thank you! 🙏🏽😊

    PinkPrimaDonna 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • Nice…love how the chef eats a piece of chicken while cutting the chicken…hope he's not the carver where I'm eating.

    Judy Fujii Hwang 22/10/2022 pm6:35
  • Was there a reason to do this demonstration so quickly? Slow it down and teach, please…

    ssisson 22/10/2022 pm6:35
