    Default Carne asada and Spatchcock chickens

    My brother came down for another visit so decided to take advantage of it and tried the spatchcock method for the first time.

    First I did up some carne asada I took out of the freezer.





    Next came the chickens.Could of used something to press them flat.









    Came out pretty good.







    No plated pics,Sorry!
    Thanks for looking!

    Looks good Paul! I'm sure it ate well!

    Looks like you missed the last step of spatchcocking though. After removing the spine, spread the two halves of the chicken on your cutting board with the breast side up. Lay your palm on top and press down with one sharp thrust. This will crack the breast bone and allow the bird to lay flatter and cook more evenly.

    Tom,I had to rely on my brother to crack the bone because of my recent surgery.I watched him do it but not sure if he got the whole thing.
    It was fun just being in the kitchen and spending time around the grill with my brother.He is a bachelor too and travels quite a bit so he doesn't cook much.I know he enjoys it.

    I won't even make fun of your chicken Paul. Looks great but I bet the carne asada was killer. Glad you got to spend time with your brother ... makes the day really special.


    Oh btw I lied ... sorry you had to have chicken
