A Butter Pat Test Kitchen Recipe.

Serves 2-3


  • 3-5lb Chicken

  • Kosher Salt

  • 1 tsp Olive Oil 


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF

  2. Prepare the bird by removing it from any packaging, drying thoroughly and allow to sit in a pan, uncovered in your fridge for up to 24hrs. Minimum 4hrs. 

  3. Once rested and dried, with a pair of kitchen shears or sharp scissors, remove the backbone of the bird. This is known as "spatchcock." This will allow your bird to cook more evenly and have a crispier exterior. 

  4. Place the bird breast side up and apply the olive oil on the entire bird. Sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt. 

  5. Place skillet in the middle rack of your oven uncovered for at least 1.5hrs. The internal temperature of your chicken should read 160-165ºF. 

  6. Remove skillet from oven and allow to cool for at least 15min. Carve and plate up or pull apart -- it's time to eat! Serve with hot Dinner Rolls and Roasted Veggies.
