How to take a supreme of chicken cut from a whole chicken.
A supreme of chicken cut is just the breast (usually with the skin left on) incorporating part of the wing. It’s very French cuisine and looks really good on the plate, also very easy to do.
Here’s a step by step guide, showing you exactly how to do it.
Firstly cut down to release the leg.
Then feel for the breast bone and cut down against it to start separating the breast.
Now take the wing and feel for the second joint from the end and cut through it.
Then carry on cutting away the breast making sure that you cut through the last joint of the wing to keep it attached to the breast.
I usually remove the tenderloin and keep it for other uses but you can keep it in if you want to.
Cut off the fatty bits that are on each end of the breast.
There you have a supreme of chicken.
