an exclusive article from Laurie Burrows Grad, grandmother extraordinaire…* A delicious recipe that says: ‘happy first day of spring’! The key to this dish is to have the butcher cut out the backbone of the chicken to “butterfly” it. To butterfly a whole chicken means to remove the chicken’s backbone so you can open the chicken like a book, or a butterfly, and lay it flat – another term also used is to ‘spatchcock’. This is a basic recipe. If you would like to embellish it with rosemary or other herbs, feel free!
