About this product
We've cut the backbone out of our juicy, pastured chicken. All you need to do is press down on the breast bone to flatten the bird, and you have yourself a spatchcocked chicken, ready for grilling, roasting, or searing in a cast iron pan. Why spatchcock? Crispy skin and shorter cooking time! The even shape makes it easier to cook, and with the heat hitting all sides more evenly, you get maximum crispy skin coverage. Backbone not included.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Rub with your favorite herbs, spices, and oil. If you want really crispy skin, refrigerate, unwrapped, overnight to let the skin dry out a bit. Roast at 450 for ~45 minutes, or until juices run clear. If you have a large cast iron pan, this is the time to show it off. Can also be cooked on a grill with great success: sear over high heat, then transfer to a cool side ("indirect heat") to continue cooking until meat is tender.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

This was an excellent dinner! Spatchcock allows all meat to cook at the same time. I seasoned with Jamie Geller’s Za’atar spice rub from Israel (highly recommend!)and some oil. Hubby cooked on grill, and it was SO delicious! I have made this in oven before with excellent results as well.
Our adult kids made this with tumeric and many other delicious spices for shabbat dinner! Delish. Thank you!
Cooking whole thing is easy
I've my Boston Irish luck so I don't get any feathers. Cooked so easily really hard to overcook I used a disposable aluminum pan marinated with lemon and Indian spices and was sweety for a week of food really great. It's a lot of food be prepared can easily accommodate a large family dinner and guests.
I was so happy to try chicken prepared this way. It was easy to roast and delicious. Thanks for the product and service. I will order again.
Juicy and succulent chicken
I prepared this chicken last Friday night and it might have been one of the best chicken meals we ever had. This poultry is high quality. I lived in Belgium for 8 years and we would get our meat and a kosher butcher in Antwerp. The butcher was old school and everything was fresh and local (local as in Belgian and French pastures). That meat was fresh. The meat from grow and behold absolutely rivals the meat we used to eat. The chicken has this freshness and flavor that you just don`t get from institutional meats. It is well worth the extra money. I also like knowing that my poultry is raised on a small farm and not part of a factory conveyor belt.
These two birds were perfectly ready for me to stuff the skins and cook. I was thrilled that they were meaty and juicy and not as salty as other kosher chicken, I would totally purchase these superior chickens again.
simple to prepare and outstanding to eat.
Never made a spatchcock chicken before. Perfect 50 minutes on the grill, let sit for 20 minutes before cutting. Juicy and yummy!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
