Make It

Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Spatchcock Chicken
If using kitchen shears to cut out the backbone, place chicken, breast-side down, on cutting board. If using a knife, place chicken, breast-side up, on cutting board. Cut along one side of the backbone, then cut along the other side of the bone to remove it.
How to Grill with Indirect Heat
The chickens can instead be grilled over indirect heat. The covered grill then acts like an oven, so there is no need to turn the food. Use this grilling method for foods that require at least 25 min. of grilling time or foods that are so delicate that direct exposure to the heat source would dry them out, such as roasts, whole chickens, thick steaks, ribs or delicate fish fillets.
