There are many different techniques. Here is a basic one.

Cut each leg off from the bird at the joint. Then, cut each leg into the thigh and drumstick parts. Set aside.

Cut the wings off through the joint, and set aside.

Cut off one breast completely by cutting straight down along the breast bone, and then cutting horizontally in at the bottom of the breast. Lay the breast on the cutting board, and cut into slices.

Repeat for the other breast when needed.

Serve.
