Making Spatchcocked Chicken was a success!
Posted by Mario Bosquez
Mario's Weekend Cooking Challenge was a tasty success! The most recent challenge featured a lesson in making Spatchcocked Chicken. This method of making a moister, faster-cooking chicken comes our way from the May edition of "Everyday Food." We learned that having extra-sharp poultry shears is important since you have to remove the chicken's backbone in order to butterfly it. This recipe cooks at 500 degrees so having a squeaky clean oven really ensures safety since the chicken will reach a very high temperature. This method amazing...the chicken cooks in about thirty-minutes!
Special thanks to our guest chef Sandy Gluck, who co-hosts "Everyday Food" on radio channel from Monday through Friday at 11:00 a.m. ET. Here's a look at our Cooking Challenge home chefs' results. Wonderful job everyone!
