When we were young newlyweds, my next door neighbor was a caterer and taught cooking classes in her home. Oh, how I LOVED that! I could attend for free, by helping with her food prep. She called me her Sous Chef. I thought it meant her “chopper-upper”. Actually, it means the “next chef” in line. The first thing I learned, I think, was how to remove tendons from a mess of chicken tenderloins.
If you don’t know how to… just watch the video…
How to remove chicken tendons
Believe me, a thin boning blade really helps, not-to-mention, as does young-strong-fingers! I understand now, why it was perhaps “my first” lesson!
They (and we) moved away not long after, and lost touch, 🙁 However, she’ll always be in my heart! Why, just the other evening, I prepped 5 lb chicken tenders before freezing most! I’m pleased to report, “On a good night, it’s nice to see I’ve still got it.” (even living with RA)!
