Ask Jan: What’s an ‘Airline’ Chicken or Steak?

September 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Readers who read the Eat Beat entry today wanted to know: What’s an “airline” chicken?

Chef Van Coyle of Entre Nous in North Palm Beach answers:

“It’s a butcher’s cut of a meat or chicken with the wing bone, or a rib or shank bone, that is cut to stand up on the plate.  It’s also called a ‘French’ chicken, in the case of poultry.”

Another place that serves the “airline” steak is Dockside Sea Grille in Lake Park.

So, the name comes from the wing-like appearance, has nothing to do with airlines anywhere, and now you know and can win a bar bet or something with it….”Bone” appetit.
