1/3 Photos of Quick-Roasted Chicken With Mustard and Garlic, Jacques Style
Spatchcocking a whole chicken is the process of removing the backbone and flattening it. It reduces roasting time and produces an evenly roasted bird. Weighting it down with a brick covered with foil is supposed to be a great way to grill a whole chicken, but I have never done this. In this recipe by Jacques Pepin, he spatchcocks the chicken, then partially cuts through leg and thigh to reduce cooking time even further. This very easy recipe involves 2 steps in cooking, first on top of the stove over high heat, followed by roasting in the oven. Although I followed the recipe this time by cutting through the joints, I find I still get excellent results by simply removing the backbone, foregoing cutting through the joints until serving. WONDERFUL FLAVORS! Chef Jacques suggests serving with mashed potatoes. I found his recipe on the Food & Wine web site, and it is from his book, FAST FOOD MY WAY. With a beautiful organic chicken on hand and limited time, this is a fave.
