This one-pan dish is SO EASY, juicy and delicious. There is a certain comfort in a roasted chicken dinner, especially one that is guaranteed to hit all the tastebuds! The spatchcock roasted chicken has a crispy golden skin and juicy tender meat. One of the best parts is that the potatoes and potatoes soak up all the flavour by cooking under the juices of the chicken

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 large carrots – sliced
  • 400g brussels sprouts – halved
  • 8 medium potatoes – cubed
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • 1.5 tbsp salt
  • 6 cloves garlic – finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary – chopped
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil


Step 1: Place the chicken breast side down and cut along the spine with a pair of kitchen shears. Remove the spine and either roast it with the rest of the chicken or save it for stock. Flip the bird over and gently press down on the breast bone to flatten the chicken

Step 2: Combine all ingredients for the chicken marinade and rub all over the chicken including under the skin without tearing it. For maximum flavour – allow chicken to marinate for 24 hrs in the fridge

Step 3: Preheat oven to 425 F 

Step 4: Combine brussels sprouts, potatoes and carrots into a large bowl. Toss in avocado oil and sprinkle the mix of herbs over until fully seasoned. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the ingredients evenly spread out on the pan

Step 5: Place the chicken skin side up on top of the veggies. This will allow the juices from the chicken to cook and flavour the veggies

Step 6: Bake for 30 minutes. Check on the chicken and rotate the pan, if some veggies are starting to brown faster than the rest, give the pan a shake and to rearrange them to be evenly cooked. If there are spots on the chicken that are getting too brown, cover those parts with some tin foil and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes.

Step 7: Remove pan from the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before carving

Step 8: Slice and serve up to enjoy immediately!!
