1/5 Photos of How to Spatchcock a Chicken
This is a method to take the backbone out of a whole chicken so that it lays flat and is easy to grill
My Private Note
- 1Place chicken on a flat surface breast side down, legs facing away from you.
- 2With kitchen shears or a very sharp knife, cut out the neck bone all the way to the butt by cutting down one side of the neck bone and then repeat on the other side.
- 3Turn chicken over and press flat, season and grill or bake as desired.
