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!
Here at Grandparentslink, we think this is the best time of year for cooking. There’s no holiday pressure – that’s history as our guests have all gone home. Old man winter might be trolling around outside; and all this means is that we might be indoors a little more than expected. So, if you’re at home today, this is the perfect time to drag out a heavy soup pot, pick some spices, and get something warm and comforting simmering on the back burner.
Ok… can you smell it? can you feel it? can you taste it?
