March Madness: Day Two
Well day two has arrived and the madness has overtaken me but it brought along a nasty friend; a cold. I had planned on cooking Smothered Chicken for dinner tonight using a recipe from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook but I didn't feel up to it. Way too much chopping and roux creating.
Instead I spatchcocked the bird and oven roasted it. The chicken was served with Spanish rice and steamed green beans. From what I hear it was a tasty meal, not that I could tell. Damn.
The picture you see above is of a spatchcocked chicken. A spatchcocked chicken is created when you remove the back bone and the keel and flatten the bird. The picture comes to us from The Naked Whiz, who has a photographic tour of how to spatchcock and cook the bird. Enjoy.
