Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Pair this chicken with smart sides, such as grilled vegetables and a crisp mixed green salad.
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 backbone, then cut along other side of bone to remove it. Place chicken, skin side up, then press firmly to flatten.
How to Prevent Food From Sticking to the Grill
To prevent food from sticking to the grill, lightly brush the grill grate with vegetable oil before preheating the grill. Or, spray the cold grill grate with cooking spray.
