Butterflying a chicken is one of those kitchen techniques that you should just know how to do.
I know, I know….I know some people get all weird’ed out about handling a big ol’ raw bird.
Well, get over it. It won’t bite.
Learning how to butterfly a whole chicken will save you some cooking time, because the chicken will lay flat on your cooking surface.
It’s easy peasy.
You will just need some heavy duty kitchen shears or a large, very sharp and sturdy chefs knife.
I use my Cutco Scissors because they are the best ever.
Get yourself a nice big chicken, rinse it and dry it well.
