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.

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.
