Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

spatchcocked roasted chicken

for Christmas eve this year, i made a spatchcocked roasted chicken with vegetables.  this is a term used by the butcher when the chicken is split down the back, backbone is removed and the chicken is flattened. i placed the chicken over a roasting rack on a sheet pan.  below the rack are vegetables which were seasoned.  i chose red potatoes, celery, white onion, and carrots.  i seasoned with salt, pepper, and parsley.

i used poultry seasoning on the chicken and baked at 425 degrees for 45 minutes, then reduced the temperature to 375 for 25 minutes.  i checked the chicken temperature at serving time with a thermometer and it was 165 degrees and delicious!  this was a moist 3 1/2 pound chicken and there seemed to be less waste then when roasting the whole chicken.
