As per Sally's excellent advice above - but to take another 4 minutes out of the operation, just rip the entire keel/breastbone out with the breasts still attached. I cut through the ribs with scissors to get a neater joint, but just tearing the thing out works too (but it isnt pretty!) Bon appetite...

Jon, did you make them?
And if so, is there a pattern available somewhere for them?

Cheers,
