Hello to you all!
Everyone has their favourite cut of chicken! In the very beginning, I clearly remember us learning how to do the 5 basic cuts as quickly as possible, with a knife! Yes, we were slow, but we persevered until we upgraded to a sharp spinning blade!
One of my very best chicken cuts is Spatchcocked. What a strange word. Where did it come from?
This wacky term comes from Ireland and may be an abbreviation of
“Dispatch the cock”
a phrase which the Irish apparently threw around in the 18th century when they needed to whip up a quick and simple chicken dinner. Basically, spatchcocking means the same thing as butterflying, but it’s just more fun to say.
I love “FLATTIES” because they are so easy to cook! In the oven or on a braai or Weber, they cook quickly and evenly.
Enjoy one of our Butterflied Flatties, plain or spiced at a special price this week!
Cheers for now,
Lindy and the Red Barn Team
