Chandler’s Thanksgiving Chicken is the succulent bird you want at the holidays, without the huge turkey! Enjoy it any time of the year though. 


  • 45 pound Whole Chicken, backbone removed & flattened
  • 1 package Ranch Seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup Duke’s Mayonnaise
  • 1 TBS poultry seasoning


  1. Preheat your oven to 425˚.
  2. Place your spatchcocked chicken on a half sheet pan, and cover with ranch seasoning.
  3. Massage into the bird, then place the bird in the oven for 25 minutes.
  4. While the bird roasts, stir the mayo and poultry seasoning together.
  5. After 25 minutes, remove your bird from the oven, and begin basting with the seasoned mayo every 5-7 minutes.
  6. Allow to cook until the bird reaches an internal temperature of 165˚.
  7. Let the bird rest, tented with foil for 15 minutes before carving.
