I found something very similar on America's Test Kitchen, and modified it to fit my taste. Best roast chicken ever, and comes apart very easily.

Directions

  1. Take chicken out of bag and take out giblits. Take kitchen shears {knife doesn't work well here} and cut along each side of backbone, removing it completely. Flip chicken over so you are looking at the "inside" of the chicken and make a slice around the middle of the two breasts. Press hard on the breast so you flatten the chicken a little bit.
  2. Place flattened chicken, skin side up, on rack in roasting pan. Season with salt/pepper/garlic flakes to taste, and rub in about 2 tbsp of olive oil into skin.
  3. Roast in oven about 1 hour at 350, when done pieces can be cut off or sliced off very easily.
