Roasted Spatchcock Chicken

When I don’t have enough time to roast a whole chicken I usually opted for roasted spatchcock chicken. It is as good as roasting a whole chicken except that roasted spatchcock chicken is cooked faster than the whole chicken. This chicken was seasoned with butter, paprika, garlic, fresh parsley, rosemary, thyme, onion, salt, and pepper. Make sure the butter is softened this helps with spreading the butter over the chicken.

When rubbing the butter mixture make sure you gently lift the chicken skin and spread the butter mixture generously be careful not to let the skin rip.

You can also use this seasoning for a whole chicken.
