Roasted Garlic Lemon Herb Butter Spatchcocked Chicken


For chicken:

1 3lb Spatchcocked chicken
3 tsp of kosher salt, or to taste
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp of paprika
For garlic lemon butter
½ stick of unsalted butter, softened
1 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp of freshly chopped rosemary
1 tbsp of freshly chopped thyme
1 tbsp of freshly chopped parsley
1 tsp of salt
¼ tsp of black pepper

For roasting chicken:

1 large white onion, roughly chopped
1 large yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 tbsp of olive oil

For roasted garlic:

1 head of garlic, unpeeled and head of garlic cut off
Season to taste with olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika


For roasted garlic:

Prepare roasted garlic prior to starting the cooking process as it takes about 30 minutes to roast in the oven
Cut the head off the top of the garlic and place on a piece of foil big enough to cover the head of garlic 
Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt, pepper and paprika
Close the foil around the garlic and roast on 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until garlic is softened enough to easily squeeze out of the papery skin 

For garlic butter:

In a small bowl add softened butter and squeeze the bulb of garlic until all the garlic is released from the cloves
Season the butter to taste with salt and pepper and add fresh rosemary, thyme and parsley 
Mix well with a fork for about 30 seconds until well combined 

For chicken:

First, wash chicken and pat dry then season to taste with kosher salt and pepper, allow the chicken sit room temperature for 15 minutes to absorb some of the salt 
Once chicken has absorbed some of that salt, lather it in the garlic butter front and back and under the skin
Next, place onion and bell pepper on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. 
Lastly, place the buttered chicken on top of the onions and peppers and lightly coat the chicken with paprika in a thin even layer
Bake chicken on the top rack at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until internal temperature registers 165 degrees and top is golden brown and caramelized. Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before serving
