  • Heat oven to 450ºF.
  • Mix dressing, garlic and rosemary until blended. Place potatoes in large bowl. Add 1/4 cup dressing mixture; toss to evenly coat potatoes. Spread into single layer on foil-covered rimmed baking sheet.
  • Use kitchen shears or sharp knife to spatchcock chicken. (See tip.) Open chicken butterfly-style; place, skin side up, on separate foil-covered rimmed baking sheet. Brush chicken, on and under the skin, with remaining dressing mixture.
  • Bake chicken and potatoes 30 min., placing potatoes on top rack. Reduce oven temperature to 400ºF. Bake an additional 15 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF) and potatoes are tender.

Special Equipment Needed

How to Spatchcock a 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.


Substitute fresh thyme for the rosemary.


Whole chickens are generally at least 3-1/2 lb., instead of the 3 lb. called for in the video. If the smallest whole chicken in your market is closer to 4 lb., it will yield 8 servings and will need to cook about 15 min. longer. Whatever size chicken you use, be sure to test with a thermometer to be sure the chicken reaches 165°F.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good Chicken!! I have made chicken using Zesty Italian for a long time. I have never added garlic or any other spices other than salt & pepper, but will try this recipe next time. I usually marinade the chicken in the dressing then grill it. So good!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average recipe But why oh why do we have to have an awful high-pitched american voice-over on the video, had to reduce the volume. But the recipe was fine without having to listen, I read the instructions!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What? I never heard of spatchcock before.. That's OK But you say to reduce heat to 400 F after 30 minutes. What the heck was it before that...900F? Very confusing instructions
