Hi, I'm executive chef, Jason Tilmann, Triumph Restaurant, here at The Iroquois Hotel, 49 West 44th Street in New York City and today I'm going to show you how to bake chicken quarters and what we're going to do first is we're going to go ahead and do the leg and a thigh, real easy. There's a joint right here, woo, pop, there goes the joint, right there, one. We're going to do the same for the other side. Put them right in this bowl. Now we're going to go ahead and take these two breasts as the other piece and we're going to go ahead and cut down the back, there goes the backbone. We'll do it on the other side as well. We'll save this for stock, alright, and right down the center and there you go. Now we can take and go ahead and de-bone it if you'd like, we can take bones out of here if you'd like. I personally when I'm baking a chicken, this is going to be a baked quarter chicken, I really like to keep the bone in because there's a lot of flavor in there. Basically we're going to put them now in a bowl, the four quarters, we're going to add a little bit of garlic. It doesn't get any easier than this. This is so simple, a little garlic, some fresh chopped parsley, a little bit of salt, a little bit of pepper, a little bit of olive oil. Now you can add rosemary, you can add thyme, you can add lemon, you can make a chile if you want it like spicy. You want to set your oven at about 400 degrees. You want to go a little bit higher on this one. You're going to go ahead and put them on a baking rack. And we are going to go ahead and put these in our 400 degree oven for about, it's going to take 15 minutes, boom. Now if you don't know 100% how to check, you can see, you can look back and see that this chicken is starting to separate, ow, that's hot, but that's okay. So, or the other way you can look is you have these thermometers. This is a digital thermometer, you stick it in there. So you'll know it's done, you're definitely going to know it's done when it's at 165 or higher. That's the proper temperature to cook chicken to create any sickness. And so that is it really it. We have simple easy and nice baked quartered chicken. I'm executive chef, Jason Tilmann, Triumph Restaurant, here in The Iroquois Hotel, New York City, 49 West 44th Street. Thank you so much for watching.
