How to Cook a Flat Chicken

by

When you flatten a chicken, you most likely want to grill or roast it. Flattening your chicken allows you to cook the chicken evenly, since the meat is about the same thickness all over. When grilling a flat chicken, you should stay close by so that you can move when the dripping fat cause the flames to flare. To infuse the flat chicken with flavor, you can either marinate it for a few hours before cooking or baste it repeatedly with a glaze while it grills.

Grilling

Step 1

Prepare your favorite marinade in a dish. Place the flat chicken in the dish with its skin side up and wings tucked in.

Step 2

Marinate the chicken for 2 hours in the refrigerator, turning it occasionally. Remove the chicken from the fridge 1 hour before cooking.

Step 3

Turn on the grill to medium heat. Cover the grate with heavy-duty foil and spray with cooking spray.

Step 4

Transfer the chicken from the marinade to the grill, placing it breast side down.
