Garlic, Lemon & Herb Spatchcock Chicken Platter

Garlic, Lemon & Herb Woodfired Spatchcock Chicken Platter

This fresh and zesty dish serves a family of 4 and showcases a juicy spatchcock chicken infused with the bright flavors of garlic, lemon, and an array of fragrant herbs.

The chicken is meticulously prepared, first butterflied to ensure even cooking, then marinated in a fragrant blend of minced garlic, freshly squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, and a selection of aromatic herbs like rosemary, thyme, and parsley. This marinade imbues the chicken with a mouthwatering citrusy and herbaceous taste.

The marinated chicken is then grilled over natural hardwood charcoal, resulting in crispy, golden-brown skin that seals in the succulent juices. The woodfired cooking method adds a subtle smokiness that complements the bright, herbaceous flavors.

Served alongside is a hearty portion of jollof rice - a West African staple made with tomatoes, onions, and spices. To complete the meal, a vibrant mix of sautéed seasonal vegetables adds color, texture, and nutrition.

This balanced and flavor-packed platter is a true delight for the senses. The tender, aromatic woodfired chicken pairs beautifully with the fragrant jollof rice and fresh seasonal vegetables, creating a wholesome and satisfying dining experience that celebrates the rich culinary traditions of Africa.

FireBirds Woodfire BBQ Chicken

I was born in Sierra Leone (West Africa) but grew up in the U.K. My mum is a chef, and my dad taught me how to season and cook meat. I create meals by fusing ingredients from Africa, the Caribbean, and southern America to create unique meals busting with vibrant fresh ingredients and high-quality perfectly cooked meat. I put my own twist on popular traditional meals from each region to give customers a full food tour of Afro-fusion cuisine.

What a scrumptious feast!

What a feast! Such a generous and big chicken, perfectly seasoned and cooked, I defiitely plan to try the other marinades. The only downside was that the vegetables (also perfectly cooked) and the aromatic and beautifully spiced jollof rice were meagre in comparison to the chicken., not enough to serve the number of eaters that would be digging into that enormous scruptious chicken! My picture btw is just of one portion, the whole chicken looked so glorioius that my husband started cutting it up into portions befoe I could get my camera out!

Amazing flavour, tender, moist chicken. I fed 4 people very generous portions with spare left over. Enjoyed the side dishes that were a perfect accompaniment.

Perfectly cooked whole chicken

We enjoyed this spatchcock chicken, we liked the grilled flavours with lemon and herb. The jollof rice went very well, but the grilled vegetables side dish did not reheat well, they went a bit grey and soggy, and there were very few. We added our own fresh vegetables.

The chicken was tender and delicious with a punchy smoky and herby flavour, and the jollof rice was flavourful without being too spicy. The veg were nice too. However, while there's easily enough chicken for 4, the veg and rice dishes were only enough for 2.

Rich, deep, flavours without distracting from the tender and moust chicken. Tastes and texture of a good quality chicken. Love the accompanying jolly rice + liked the tangy finish. The fresh roasted veg was a perfect partner to both rice and chicken. My only concern was that small portion of both side dishes were insufficient for the size of chicken, which would easily feed six.
