Low Carb Spatchcock Sriracha Mustard Chicken


 

This is probably the fastest way to cook a whole chicken, I have ever come across. If you’re not familiar with the spatchcock technique, pull up a chair you’re going to thank me for this.

Spatchcock also known as spattlecock, is a way to prepare poultry for roasting or grilling. The backbone of the chicken is removed, which allows for the chicken to flatten nicely into your roasting pan. Why do you want to cook your chicken this way? For one it cuts the cooking time in half which translates into a juicer bird.

Who doesn’t want to cook faster and more efficiently? Don’t let the funny name deter you. Spatchcock is a simple technique that will get you in and out or your kitchen faster. One of the main reasons I like spatchcocking is that exposes more skin, which allows for the chicken skin to crisp nicely.

Besides roasting a whole chicken in half the time, it makes a more elegant presentation and makes carving a chicken much easier. Sounds like something to remember come Thanksgiving Day. Until then, I plan on cooking this way more often since having cooked roasted chicken leftovers is also a step away from another quick meal.


For this recipe I also wanted a nice way to use the Sriracha mustard I recently found in my local supermarket. Wanting the chicken to shine I made a combination of white wine and the Sriracha mustard to pour over the chicken before placing it in the oven. The result of my little experiment? A new and delicious way to bring dinner to the table quickly.

  1. Hilda, this looks absolutely delicious! I never learned the art of cutting a chicken (you're lucking if you can tell a wing from a thigh when I'm done!), but I think I could handle cutting out the backbone. ;-) Sharing and pinning and using this recipe the next time I cook a whole chicken! Glad to have found you from Bloggers Pit Stop!
