Method

1. To check if the chicken is cooked through, insert a skewer into the thickest part of the thigh. The juices should run clear. If it needs a little longer, return the chicken to the barbecue for 5-10 mins before checking again.
2. Get started: Take the chicken out of the fridge 30 mins before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature.
3. Cooking indoors: Heat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Pop the spatchcock chicken into a large roasting tin, skinside up. Rub the skin with a good pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil.
4. Slide the chicken into the oven and roast for 1 hr 15 mins, basting from time to time.
