I see some remove the center Brest cartilage along with the back bone and some just smash the breast down...Which way do you suggest?

  • Just press it flat, if it breaks great, if it doesn't break, that's OK too. Lately, I've cut the chicken up into two breasts, two legs/thighs and two wings. 
    Put the legs on first, 5 minutes later the breasts and 5 minutes or so later, the wings. The legs get done at 170-180, breasts at 150-160, wings, well they are just done. If I'm lazy, I leave the whole bird together.

  • I actually use a sharp knife and cut into the cartilage. Then flip over and when I press down it splits easily.
