Hi Art... My name is Art too. :)
OR heres another way. Grab the bird pinch off the head at the shoulders. With the bird upright and its back to you, grab a wing and you can break it with your fingers close to the shoulder, do the same to the other wing. Flip the bird over, and search for its anal cavity with you thumb. Upon locating it , insert thumb and as you push in, make sure you can feel the innards in front of the thumb(against the nail) and the breast will be under your thumb. Then slowly seperate the breast from the body by pulling / splitting it apart. Throw away the rest of the bird in the left hand, the breast will be in the right hand. On the edge of the breast, grab the skin and tug it with the feathers and it should kinda' roll off the breast, like a wrapper off a candy bar... then clean with water. 8)
