Spatchcock Chicken with Lemon and Herbs

A total upgrade from the standard rotisserie chicken. This recipe is pretty straightforward and comes together in a hurry. The majority of the prep work is in finely mincing the fresh herbs and garlic.

After a brief rest, transfer the roasted chicken to your favorite serving platter. If desired, dress it up with some additional lemon herb sauce and more fresh herbs.
step 8
Pour the juice that is remaining in the pan into a small serving bowl, passing it through a strainer before serving it alongside your roasted chicken.
