Free Range Butterflied Chicken
To spatchcock a chicken, or butterfly it, is to remove the backbone, thus allowing it to be completely opened out and flattened. Doing this reduces the cooking time significantly and allows the whole bird to be cooked in different, speedier ways, like barbecuing.
A Pipers Farm chicken lives twice the length of most other birds, foraging amongst our lush Devon pasture. We hang our chickens for a week to enhance their depth of flavour, this is one of the reasons Pipers Farm chickens taste so unique.
When your meat arrives simply pop it into your freezer.
When you have chosen what you would like to eat, drop your items, still in their individual packaging into cool water and wait for 15 minutes until they are fully thawed. Once fully thawed remove the packaging and get cooking.
You can also gently thaw any items by leaving them in the fridge or at room temperature.

Place the chicken skin-side down over a hot part of the barbecue and cook for 4-5 mins, or till well coloured. Flip over and cook for a further 4-5 mins.
