Let’s make dinner! Does cooking a whole chicken intimidate you? Or do you want to cook one, but you don’t have time to roast it for 2 hours?
Cook A Whole Chicken in Under One Hour
All you need is:
- 1 whole chicken, thawed (4-6 lbs)
- Spices (garlic, paprika, salt, pepper)
- A sharp knife
The secret is to spatchock the chicken – a sentence I can’t say without snickering like a fourteen-year-old boy.
Spatchcocking sounds intimidating – or possibly horrifying – but it is almost as easy as slicing a pizza. 1-2 quick cuts, a sprinkle of seasoning, and you’re ready for the oven.

The Perfect Drinking Game
Side note: this video makes the perfect drinking game. Count how many times I ask, “Okay?” ;D
It’s totally embarrassing. Extra points if you leave a comment telling me the number.
Also, I DID wash my hands before touching the Greek Seasoning :-). And I did NOT get chicken guts all over my white shirt. This is a splash-free recipe. I thought you should know.
My kids interrupted the video, so there are some weird breaks, but as always – despite my failings – I hope this video helps you save money and eat healthy. Thanks for visiting my kitchen!
