Serving Size: Serves 2-4 Ingredients
  • 1 Whole Chicken (about 4-5 lbs)
  • 1 Recipe BBQ Sauce (recipe below)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • De-bone a whole chicken (see link above). Lay the chicken open with the meat side up. Ladle out a few ladles of your bbq sauce onto the meat side of the chicken and rub around. Sprinkle a little salt all over the meat.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Tie up the chicken ballotine with butcher's twine (see link above) and place in a roasting pan. Ladle another ladle of bbq sauce on to the skin and rub around. Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for 1.5 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (basting with more BBQ sauce every 20 minutes).
  • Let the chicken rest 15 minutes before carving. Serve with extra bbq sauce on the side.
