Hi, season's greetings!
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have got a situation where the bird we have his way too big. It's 4kg for 3 people lol!
Hence, I am thinking about cooking half of it... running a big knife along the breast bone so there's 1 breast (which will feed 2), 1 leg and one wing. I'll then freeze the other half?
Does this sound like a reasonable plan? If so:
- How should I adjust the timings beyond changing my calculation of the time it gives on the packet? It says 3hr 40 right now but I reckon I need to go lower than half, say to 1hr 30min? I know the rule about juices coming clear but I want a rough time so all the other food can be ready at the same time.
Edit: as writing this got a Xmas call from a friend and she tells me this is spatchcocking. So any tips / warnings so it doesn't go dry etc?
