Peruvian Spatchcock Chicken (Low-FODMAP)

Marinated Spatchcock Chicken

By spatchcocking it, you’ll get the juiciest, most succulent chicken you could ask for. You’ll also want to make sure that your juicy chicken is full of flavor with every bite. To accomplish this, I marinade my Peruvian spatchcock chicken in a blend of flavorful spices overnight.

Spatchcock chicken and marinade overnight.

Lay whole chicken breast side down. Using strong kitchen sheers, cut out the spine completely. I usually start at the neck on one side and work my way across to the tail on one side first. (I like to freeze this chicken spine for making chicken stock.)
Put the spineless chicken in with your marinade and leave it overnight.

Preheat oven to 450°

When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 450°.
Pull out the chicken and lay on a baking sheet. Tuck the wings behind the shoulders (so the tips don't burn). To flatten the bird more, use both hands (one on top of the other) and apply force straight down on each breast at the top, pressing until the breast bone cracks. Once preheated, pop that chicken in!

Cook until breast meat measures 150°, about 35-45 minutes

This might take 35-45 minutes depending on the size of your chicken and the heat of your oven. When it's close to done, I would start checking the temperature with an instant-read thermometer.
Serve with your favorite sides!
