Spatchcocking is my favorite way to cook poultry and I’m here to shout it from the rooftops!
WHY spatchcock a chicken?? Because it results in the juiciest, tastiest chicken you will EVER eat. Also, it decreases the cooking time. And honestly, it’s super simple so I think the real question is why not?
Because learning to spatchcock a chicken totally changed my take on chicken, I made a short video to show you exactly how to do it so you can enjoy roasted chicken every bit as much as I do!
TL:DR thaw your chicken overnight in the fridge, remove backbone using sharp kitchen shears, lay chicken flat in a roasting pan and allow to sit at room temp for 30 minutes. Bake at 425F for approximately 45 minutes. Remove from oven at 162F and allow to rest 10-15 minutes to finish cooking. Enjoy fabulous, juicy, tender, chicken!
