I totally whimped out and had the butcher at WF debone and butterfly the chicken for me but if I remember correctly, I’ve seen Ina bring home a deboned chicken before so I don’t feel too guilty. 🙂
The chicken turned out awesome!! I was so nervous to be grilling the whole thing on a gas grill but I kept the heat low to medium low and it took about 23-25 minutes to cook. I started with skin-side down and flipped it after about 12 minutes (just like the recipe says). The skin was crispy and delicious (and I’m NEVER one to eat the skin) and meat was cooked perfectly. Can’t wait to post about it!
My hubby said this was the best chicken he ever had!! Everything came out perfect and the meat just fell off the bone. I used 2 chickens and next time will only use one. The leftovers quickly became a delicious chicken salad. Definitely a keeper!
I have an issue with chicken on the bone (I’m trying to get over it). 🙂 I went with skiness/boneless breasts and a few extra tenderloins I had to use up and it worked perfectly. This was a really yummy recipe that I’ll definitely use again!
It shows how to butterfly a chicken. I do this reguarly. A whole chicken is much less expensive and you get a great amount of meat and uses. Even and especially if you cannot get all the meat of the bones you can boil them for stock. Delicious!
I can’t wait to try this…I recommend kitchen shears for your tool drawer–makes short work of getting rid of that chix backbone…will report back…I know my family will love this…I also think it’s a good–GREAT–excuse for me to go buy myself a charcoal grill. Our gas grill died a long painful death..
