Spatchcock

Did you know that “spatchcock” is both a noun and a verb? Originally the word was used to identify small, young chickens on the farm. In Australia, we still sell them under that name, but if you are from another part of the world, you might know it as spring chicken or poussin. Don’t let the name fool you though, everything you can do with chicken, you can do with a spatchcock.


Back to our story though, when it came to cooking these birds, by far the most common option was to butterfly the spatchcock in order for it to cook as quickly as possible and more evenly, rather than leaving it whole and roasting. This method became the default that the term “spatchcock” transformed into becoming the verb for this particular method of butterflying birds/game meat.


Since most spatchcock/poussin are around 4-6weeks old and weight around 400-500grams, the meat is very delicate whilst remaining tender and juicy after cooking. The size is actually perfect for a single serve for each adult, so if you are planning on people over for dinner, the rule of one spatchcock per person makes it extremely easy to cater for. Even if you are not entertaining, it’s still a great option for a family dinner because of this rule, and the fact that you can cut significant time compared to roasting a full chicken for the family.


When it comes to recipes, you can take all your favourite chicken options and use them with the smaller bird. Game Farm has a collection of recipes you can follow, so order today online and follow our steps for a great new dinner option.
