This is if you really want to get intimately involved in a chicken...how to cut a whole chicken. I'm going to keep that on my list of things to consider but I am not running out to buy a whole chicken anytime soon.
My kitchen scale was very helpful with the task of packaging the breasts. I used my scale to measure out 1 pound packages of the chicken. I ended up with about 3 pounds of chicken breasts from the 5 pounds of boned chicken.
