Workbook Illustrated: How to Debone a Chicken Thigh
- Use your hands to remove the skin from the chicken thigh. Trim off the excess fat with a sharp knife and discard.
- Place the thigh rough side up on a cutting board and locate the bone. Score a line through the meat along the bone with the tip of the knife. Using a short, flicking motion, expose the top of the bone with the tip of the knife.
- Hold one end of the bone. Using the base of the knife, scrape the meat off the bone in short strokes.
- When the bone has been mostly scraped clean, separate the end of the bone completely from the meat. Trim any remaining cartilage or bone still on the meat.
