Wow that was easy

Wow that was easy. Spatchcocked my first chicken tonight. Followed the instructions on a youtube video and then grilled it in preparation for a pot luck tomorrow. A little bit of my secret (ok, nothing I have is secret) smouldering chicken marinade, and it's cooked, refrigerated, and ready to be served over a bed of noodles that have been cooked just right and tossed while hot with butter, EVOO, and a 1/4 tsp. liquid smoke. I can't hardy wait. I was a good boy and kept my fingers out of it. But it wasn't easy.

Glad it worked out.

Spatchcocked is the only way I cook a whole chicken now.
It takes less time to cook. Easier to manage a whole chicken.
GW, did you notice how juicy the breasts were after cooking and resting time?

Okay, GW, I'll bite. How do you spatchcock? Is it something like neutering a rooster?

I still do my chickens sitting on a can of something, but I love spatchcocking Cornish game hens. (I like game hens for single servings.) A good pair of kitchen shears and a sharp knife for getting out that pointed bone and you're good to go.
Here's the vid I learned from. It should open up in your media player.
