Ingredients

  • 1 3-½- to 4-lb. chicken (I prefer organic)
  • ½ tsp. dried herbes de Provence
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 bunches (about 2 oz. total) fresh thyme, soaked in water for at least 30 min.
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • ¼ tsp. paprika, preferably smoked sweet Spanish (pimentón)
  • + 2 more ingredients
    • 2 scallions (both white and green parts), thinly sliced
    • Kosher salt

Place the chicken, breast side down, on a flat surface. Using poultry shears, cut along each side of the backbone and remove it. Flilp the chicken over and press firmly on the center of the breast to break the breastbone. You can see a video of this technique, called butterflying, here.
