Directions Step-By-Step

1
Visit my blog to see the original post I did when I made this chicken, as well as, a few helpful hints to assit you in prepping your chicken, so you can make this dish with ease. susan-thinkingoutloud.blogspot.com/....
2
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
3
Using poultry shears, cut along each side of the chicken backbone and remove it. You could ask your butcher to do this or you could use parts instead.
4
Turn the chicken breast side up and press on the breast bone to flatten the chicken. Using a sharp knife, cut partway through both sides of the joint between the thighs and the drumsticks. Cut partway through the joint between the wings and breast also.
5
In a bowl, mix all of the remaining ingredients. Turn the chicken breast side down and spread it with half the mustard mixture. Set the chicken in a large skillet skin side up; spread with the remaining mixture.
6
Set the skillet over high heat and cook the chicken until it starts to brown, 5 min. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast chicken for 30 - 35 minutes or until the skin is browned and the chicken is cooked through. Let the chicken rest for 5 min. before serving.
