Roasted Flattened Chicken is exactly what it say it is! This is a great way to cook a whole chicken in less time, and ensure it is kept moist and full of flavour.
It’s a great easy recipe and served alongside your favourite vegetables and roast potatoes, what could be better?!
You can also add some squash, carrots, potatoes etc in the same pan and cook altogether if you wish! It’s certainly VERY delicious!
