Spatchcock... What Do You Think It Means? (Take 2)

I had this chicken in the fridge that needed so be utilized ASAP.  Enter stage right-- Spatchcock...


1 whole chicken
white wine

Preheat oven to 400°

Spatchcock chicken.

Heat flame-safe roasting pan over med/high heat.

Smear chicken with softened butter, season generously with salt, pepper, and rosemary.

Pour wine into pan.

Add chicken cut side down and roast at 400° for 50 minutes.

Remove Chicken from pan to a plate.

Put roasting pan back over the burner (med-high heat) and add 1 1/2 C of cream.  Reduce by half and taste for seasoning.  Add accumulated juice from plate to sauce and serve with our once feathered friend.
