This morning I was reading Hufington Post on the iPad and noticed on the food site a video showing chicken ballotine- I was curious was is chicken ballotine - I am now aiming to create this dish and with the help of chef Jacques Pepin. He had a video showing how to debone a chicken and in his words (with an extremely sharp knife of course) you can do so in 1 minute. Now I am sure this isn't the first chicken he had deboned but wow what a master. Then he precides to show how to tie it up after stuffing it- again just a genius at work.

The link is below or you can always search on you tube Jacques Pepin debone chicken.

I have subscribed to the youtube site after viewing other recipes he has - enjoy the video :)<

Holey Moley! I gotta learn that! If for no other reason than to show off! I see far less dried out meat in our future as well as some new unique recipes.

Thank you so much for posting that link. I've always wondered how to debone a chicken without making it look like you've just attended a massacre.

Well isn't that awesome?! Thanks for posting the link! :D (and I totally agree with Avon, my attempts at deboning look the same!)

Thank you. I have used almost every technique shown in that video, just never at once. That was great. I go forth, a better cook! Very cool

Ok, now I have to go to work, spent the last hour watching Pepin do stuff, even Julia Child, my hero. Thanks for the monday morning derivation.

He is so straight forward... so unlike today's celebrity "let me entertain you" cooks. Just bought a cookbook of his last week at a used book store.

About Me
I am originally from the Niagara region and have lived in Whitby for over 10 years now. My better half and i enjoy fine dining and playing cards with our friends. My mother was a cook for over 35 years and I am lucky to inherit the trait of being a pretty good cook :) I can take various ingredients on hand and whip up a dish to please all my friends. I don't bake much because if you bake you will eat it and thus create a large butt :) so for now i stick mainly with entrees. All recipes is a great site to view other like minded people and try new and creative recips.
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to do major dietary changes due to digestive issues so no more gluten,dairy,eggs or red meat. I eat chicken,veggies and lts of veggies. Try to incorporate Quinoa in a lot of recipes for extra protein. I still cook all of my hubbies favorite dishes but just can' t taste test them.
My cooking triumphs
Osso Bucco - my hubby loves this dish and it is so incredibly easy to make. Greek/Italian marinated chicken, incredibly juicy chicken breast that take 10 minutes to prepare.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to make perogies when i was 12 years old - have never made them after that - long process and very fattening. If I crave them I will purchase premade from a local Polish store.
