How to Debone a Cooked Chicken

So you’ve cooked your whole chicken; now what? Now you get to debone the chicken and make delicious meals and amazing bone broth. It’s not as intimidating as it seems … and honestly there is no wrong way to do it. Sure, there is a correct way to do it, but I’m a busy Mom and I just want to get the job done.

Once my whole chicken is done cooking in the crock pot I let it cool off so I can handle the meat without burning my fingers. Lately I’ve been removing the entire chicken and putting it in a covered bowl and refrigerating overnight before disassembling. Either way is fine and will yield the same results. 

I start by pulling off the wings and legs, then I move on to the breast meat. Literally just pick all of the meat off the bones. Make sure to save all of the bones and skin to make homemade bone broth.
