Spatchcocked Chicken adapted from Dorie Greenspan’s “Everyday Dorie”

Not too long ago, Andrew had a birthday.  The minute I’d seen it advertised, I’d ordered Dorie Greenspan’s latest book “Everyday Dorie”(A Rux Martin Book Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2018) as a gift. It turned out the book took 244 pages before landing at “Desserts”. So […]
