Making Spatchcocked Chicken was a success!

Posted by

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!
