This Spatchcock Chicken recipe is our favorite way to roast a whole chicken. Every part of the roasted chicken turns out juicy and so flavorful with that garlic herb butter (the same one we use on our roasted turkey!). This one pan chicken dinner is easy and so delicious!

There is no marinating or lengthy prep required. This is simple enough for a busy weeknight but it’s also a crowd-pleaser and perfect for company!

The potatoes, carrots and Brussels sprouts roast along with the chicken. This blend of vegetables bakes to perfection and every bite is supremely flavorful. The potatoes have a crisp salty skin with a creamy inside and these were some of the best tasting Brussels sprouts I’ve tried.

Watch how to Spatchcock Chicken Video:


A whole roasted chicken can be tricky because the chicken breast can quickly dry out by the time the dark meat is cooked through, but when you butterfly a chicken (spatchcock), the chicken breast sits lower in the pan on the same level as the legs so it bakes more evenly and results in a juicy, moist and flavorful chicken.

How to Spatchcock Chicken:

1. (Preheat Oven to 425˚F after step 4) Place chicken breast-side down with the wings/ neck facing towards you. Use kitchen shears to cut through the ribs right next to the spine on both sides to remove spine.** Open the rib cage and use a heavy chefs knife to score down the sternum. This will help to pop out the breast bone and flatten the chicken. Season under the chicken with about 1/2 tsp salt and a pinch of black pepper.

**Keep the spine and bones from the roasted chicken after it is carved and use them  for the best homemade chicken bone broth!

2. Flip the chicken over with the breast side up and place on a parchment-lined, rimmed baking half sheet. Using the palm of your hand, push firmly over the breast bone so the chicken lays completely flat. You want it to lay flat so all parts of the chicken bake evenly. Separate the skin from the meat over breast, thigh and drumstick areas.

3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the flavored butter ingredients and mash together with a fork for a couple of minutes until most of the lemon juice is incorporated into the butter.

4. Spread 2/3 of it under the chicken skin and spread and dot remaining butter all over the chicken.

5. Place prepared vegetables all around the chicken then drizzle all over with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and some black pepper to taste.

Keep in mind the temperature will rise another 5-10 degrees after it comes out of the oven. Remove form oven and rest uncovered 10 minutes on a cutting board before serving.

  • Maria
    May 28, 2018

    Well, it looks like I’ll be the only negative here. I made this tonight, followed it all exactly and it took 1 1/2 hours. The chicken was moist but not really flavorful at all, considering the butter and seasoning under the skin. Veggies were good, but the chicken was really just meh. I can’t imagine what I could’ve done wrong because the recipe was very straightforward. Reply

    • Natasha
      May 28, 2018

      Hi Maria, I am always happy to help troubleshoot! The only things I could think of is maybe if you used a kosher salt, you would need to add more since kosher salt doesn’t substitute straight across. Or possibly if the chicken was over-baked, it can become dry and seem flavorless if it is no longer juicy. Reply

      May 11, 2018

      Hi Terry, I think in a roaster, you would lose all of the pan juices and that butter really adds great flavor. Also, if it is a rotisserie style roaster, it wouldnt have anything to attach to easily if the chicken is spatchcocked. I think it’s best oven roasted on a baking sheet with this method. Reply

  • Rev. Marvin Purser, Retired.

    Sounds great! I would share another meal with you: Put an inch of water inthe bottom of a large crockpot. Baste a 10-12lb turkey and then slide it all in legs at the top. Cover top with tin foil (no glass top. Cook on slow all night, adding some water each four hours. Done, the meat falls off the bones. Turn the carcass so it lays like a Santa sleigh, sand some, then paint bright red or gold or silver. Use as serving dish. I cooked deer the same way and the usual strong smell did not occur, so tender, and awesome! Reply

    The recipe was excellent and really inexpensive. I changed it a bit though, instead of drizzling oil and seasoning veggies separately, I mixed the oil/salt/pepper in a large bowl and tossed them in it for better coverage (I have an older electric oven that tends to not heat evenly). Reply

    Oh my goodness! Someone shared this video/recipe and it looked delicious. I modified slightly with ingredients I had and it was absolutely wonderful. I used two chicken breasts and substituted flat Italian green beans instead of Brussel Sprouts. Had a couple of friends over and they enjoyed the meal very much and the veggies were very tasty.

      Hi Veronica, my oven did the browning without having to broil. Be careful with broiling. I have broiled in the past when I was developing this recipe and it is really easy to overcook the chicken breast if you broil after it is fully cooked through. Reply

    ***Wife & I worked together on this recipe a couple of days ago. It was my idea so I followed the recipe & she cut up veggies etc. In spite of me not cutting properly, (I cut out the bone from breast side & started at wrong end) it was probably the best tasting chicken we’ve ever had. Very moist & very tasty. Between wife, daughter & myself we mostly finished off the whole chicken & all the veggies in one meal. The remainder of the chicken, one leg, is now in the soup pot.

    Hi Natasha,
    Question, I made this last night, did everything by your instructions, but there was way too much fat, all my veggies were swimming in fat, and potatoes didn’t crisp up. I used organic chicken, same size as yours, also what do I do if my oven doesn’t give good color to the chicken but broiling it will over cook it…:/ any tips? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      February 27, 2018

      Hi Yelena, it helps to cook the chicken in the center of the oven (not to low) to achieve that nice golden brown skin. It also helps keep the oil drizzle light since you are right, most of the flavored butter already does melt into the pan, but it also gives amazing flavor to the vegetables. Reply

      Hi Denise, I would bake longer but without testing that specific size, it’s difficult to guess the exact timing (it can also vary from oven to oven), so I definitely recommend using an instant read thermometer and following them temperature guidelines in the recipe. I hope you love the recipe! Reply

    I made this chicken today. Very delicious! I substituted parsley with dill and Brussels with regular cabbage pieces 🙂 just used what I had. I had to use thermometer ( my roasting chicken was bigger) and it came out perfect! Thank Natasha for sharing this great recipe! Reply

    I am currently in Ukraine finishing my adoption of my son. I sent him and his friend down to the market to get an already roasted chicken. Well, with the language barrier they came back with a whole raw chicken…

    I have very limited cooking tools in my apartment here but was able to whip this up last night. It was seriously the best chicken I’ve ever had and it came together rather quickly. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe! I will definitely be making this again when I get home! Reply

    I made this tonight and it was fantastic. I was a little worried about the brussel sprouts, because they almost get charred. But it brings out the sweetness of the sprouts. Everything came together like it should, we both loved it. Tons of flavor. Reply

      I am so happy you loved it!! Thank you for the amazing review! The brussels sprouts are my favorite – that crispy outer leaf – it’s deceiving because the center of the sprout is roasted just so :). Reply
