Today, we’re bringing it back to basics on the blog with Spatchcocked Roast Chicken with Potatoes – a Whole30 meal I make nearly every dang week. And I’m finally sharing how I roast an epic chicken so you can make this surprisingly simple dinner yourself!
I’ve heard over and over again from friends that they don’t like roast chicken. Of course, that always comes as a big surprise for me… But when I ask why, they usually admit that they don’t know how to roast a whole chicken. (I usually get quite the look when I mention spatchcocking, too.) Their distaste of chicken comes from tossing a package of plain chicken breasts into the oven and roasting them into a dry, unflavorful mess.
Of course, when I find this out, I start eagerly advocating for whole, skin on, perfectly roasted chicken. And though I rattle off the basics right then and there, I’m finally giving my go-to roasted chicken with potatoes recipe a permanent place on DYEP.
