What are the parts of a chicken?
Anatomically, the parts of a chicken are the same as for any bird. When cut up for cooking, the parts generally served are the leg, thigh, breast and wing. Chicken breasts may be further cut up, and are then referred to as "breast pieces." There is no single way that is correct for cutting a chicken into parts for cooking. In some cases, the back of the bird is cut as a separate part. I have heard it called just "the back," but some restaurants (notably in and around Barberton, Ohio) refer to this part as "chicken ribs."

How long to bake a whole chicken 5.62 pounds at 350 degrees?
That is a big chicken. The answer depends on whether you cut up the chicken for baking in a baking dish or truss up the chicken if you are roasting it. In either case it is best to have a meat thermometer handy and make sure you have reached 170 degrees at least or so in the thigh area (that is the area that is hardest to get heat to as the breast is up and the drumsticks and wings are out and get heat easier. For a trussed chicken I use 20 min a lb. or in this case 113 minutes (an hour and 53 minutes). For a cut up chicken in a casserole dish I use about 15 minutes a lb. or 84 minutes or an hour and 24 minutes. I think it will cook faster if cut up so check with your thermometer.

How long has a chicken survived with its head cut off?
Chicken with No Head Keeps On Running After a chicken has its head cut off, it can run around for up to a minute or longer, since the spinal nerves continue to send impulses to the muscles. There is documentation of a chicken living 18 months after having his head cut off while being slaughtered. His name was "mike the headless chicken". In his case, the axe missed the stem of the brain which runs all the processes vital to life, allowing him to live.
