Apart from the meat, you most likely have all of the following ingredients in your own home, so there is no need for a run to the store. Here’s what you’ll need to make spatchcock chicken with white wine, butter, and herbs.

  • 1 Chicken, butterflied with backbone removed 
  • Dry white wine like pinot grigio or cooking wine
  • Chicken stock
  • White onion, roughly chopped
  • Butter, cubed
  • Rosemary or thyme
  • Sage
  • Garlic cloves, whole
  • Olive oil
  • Poultry seasoning
  • Dried parsley
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black pepper

The chicken takes a while to bake, so use the time to finish some chores around the house or simply lounge around and enjoy your free time! Let’s look at the directions for cooking spatchcock chicken with white wine, butter, and herbs.

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
  2. Place the chicken skin side up in a large baking dish and season it with onions, garlic, butter, and herbs. Finally, add the chicken broth and half a cup of white wine.
  3. Take a paper towel, pat the meat dry, and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Put the chicken in the oven and cook it for one hour until it turns golden brown or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  5. Depending on the power of your oven, the meat might need more or less time to cook. If it’s weaker, bake the chicken for an additional 15-20 minutes until the juices run clear. Alternatively, if the skin gets brown too quickly, cover it with foil to prevent burning.
  6. Once done, baste it and leave it to cool for 10 minutes. Carve and enjoy your family dinner!
