The chicken used was around 1.35 kilos (just under 2 lb) with the jiblets removed. It was a standard supermarket bird but it was a corn fed one.

Turn the chicken up on it's neck end (legs uppermost). Cut gently at first through the parson's nose end down through the breast bone line. When you hit the breast bone you will need to exert considerable pressure on the knife to cut all the way down the breast bone through to the neck end.
