Rachael’s favorite New York City butcher and author of The Everyday Meat Guide is in the house -- Ray Venezia!
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…a whole chicken is the best value in all of poultry,” says Venezia. “It shrinks less and holds more flavor than just using the parts. Plus, when you get it in the fall, it’s good practice for Thanksgiving! Sure you can just pull it apart, but go ahead and practice your carving!”
Watch the video to see him carve a rotisserie chicken like a boss (it also happens to be one of his favorite meats to buy in the fall), then prepare for your friends and family to swoon over your expert carving skills at dinner.
