Cut the backbone out of the bird. Lay it flat and press on it to break the ribs and flatten it. The cooking under bricks is a method of cooking. There are a couple of ways to do if but one is to use bricks wrapped in foil. In Italy, they sell glazed bricks specifically for this purpose. I have a large cast iron skillet that I place the chicken in and another cast dutch oven that just fits into it. So I place the dutch oven on top of the chicken to press it down, mimicking the bricks. You can prepare the chicken and just roast or grill it as well without the weights.  The bird cooks more evenly and quicker so the white meat stays moist.
How do you cut the back bone out?

Kitchen scissors. A good cleaver but be careful. With the scissors a knife helps with the skin.

Use the backbone for stock. I just used a few in my turkey soup.

All this got me to thinking this would be good for dinner. Just finished eating.  :P

Joe,
I know you can do the chicken under bricks on the grill. Have you done it that way? Probably darn good on the egg.

Roasted is the best way to eat them. I throw some pancetta in with them sometimes. Bacon works as well but pancetta is food of the gods......

I'll have to suggest that to Ralph & Kathy some time, maybe gift 'em some.  Ralph's probably cooked w pancetta before; he's probably made antipasto w it.  Kathy usu. does the sprouts in butter.

Here's something for Thanksgiving or a barbecue or any time you're having any kind of flying, swimming, or crawling meat:

Mince 2 parts red radish + 1 part garlic.  (You can mash the garlic instead, but must mince the radish.)  Mix w just enough mayonnaise (regular or low fat, but not fat-free) to wet it.  You can mix in a little green slices of scallion mostly for looks, but I usu. don't.  Then let it sit chilled according to how wet & strong you want it.  1 hr. & it's like a relish; overnight & it's like a sauce, very strong.  Prepare for gas at both ends after eating this w any kind of meat.

Rob

Aldi's carries diced pancetta, I always have a package on hand. Great for risotto & pasta dishes too.
