Sweet and Spicy Roast Chicken

Spatchcock chicken or "butterfly" is a chicken with the backbone removed and cut so it allows the chicken to be completely flattened, significantly reducing the cooking time. This wacky term comes from Ireland, and means "dispatch the cock", a pharse used to whip up quick and and simple chicken dinner.
