Spatchcock Chick-a-Lickin Chicken
Thanks for this chick-a-lickin chicken recipe, Josh M.! I know what we’re making for lunch next week!
- 1 Whole chicken (about 3lbs)
- 2 tbsp Grilling Boards Chick-a-Lickin seasoning
- 1 tbsp Kosher salt (optional)
- 3 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 XL Grilling Board (soak in water for at least 1 hour before grilling)
Pre-heat your grill to 375°
While your grill is heating up, Start by Spatchcocking the chicken then pat the skin dry with a paper towel.
Now lightly coat the skin with olive oil.
Next, SHAKE THAT SPICE and season the entire bird generously with the Chick-a-Lickin seasoning. You can also tuck some seasoning under the skin on the thighs and breasts.
If you prefer, you lightly salt, the skin with the kosher salt. Remove your Grilling Board from the water and shake on a layer of Chick-a-Lickin seasoning directly on the board.
If you’re cooking on a gas grill or charcoal, you can preheat your board over direct heat for a couple minutes before putting down the layer of seasoning.
Now place your chicken on the Grilling Board. Tuck the wings back and arrange the legs.
Cook with indirect heat for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes (larger chickens will take more time) or until internal temperature reaches at least 165° in the thigh, however 185° is recommended as it will increase the tenderness.
Carefully remove the chicken while still on the board and let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing!
