Recipe Ingredients for Butterflied Chicken

2 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, plus 2 sprigs
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
1 Kosher salt
1 Freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 units (yield from 3 1/2 pounds) roasting chicken, deboned and butterflied
1/2 fruit lemon, thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Butterflied Chicken

  1. Mix the chopped rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper together in a small bowl to make a paste.

  2. Place the chickens on a sheet pan, skin side up, and loosen the skin from the meat with your fingers. Place 1/2 of the paste under the skin of each chicken. Rub any remaining paste on the outside and underside of the chickens.

  3. Turn the chicken skin side down and scatter the lemon slices and sprigs of rosemary over each chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Roll each chicken up, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
