Most people know their favorite parts of the chicken. Those they reach for first inside the picnic basket. What most don’t know is exactly where those butcher cuts are made. Let Paula’s chicken chart be your guide. As a bonus, each cut will take you to some of our favorite recipes using the coordinating cut.

The top portion of the leg, above the knee joint that is connected to the body of the chicken. Dark meat only.
