Stuff lemon, sage, and parsley under the chicken halves. Salt liberally, use a blowtorch to dry the skin, then stick into an oven at 450 for 20-25 min. Baste once and sprinkle with chopped herbs and pepper. Roast for 5 more min.

Over cooked that is...

I don't spatchcock them. Just simply halved. I roast with all the bones then strip off the meat to make a quick broth afterwards. I like having a little cavity underneath to stuff aromatics. With a lemon half in there they never seem to get dry even if I (think) I overlooked them.

Duh halves now I see. Hence quicker cooking time. I always roast two at a time for lunch meat all week. Pic throws me off now, spatchcocked or just halved? Don't look flat.

Did you spatchcock them yourself?

I like these sideways birds. Do you roster them? Are they small birds? I always do 15 min upside down at 500. They always need another 30 at least when I drop to 350.
