Why do you Spatchcock a chicken?
Why spatchcock chicken? Spatchcock chicken cooks more evenly as it’s on a level surface, so the breast and thigh meat are done at the same time. The chicken also cooks 25% faster when butterflied, and because it’s on a flat surface, there is maximum exposure to heat, which results in more crispy, golden brown skin.
Do you cover chicken when baking?
You never have to worry about covering chicken while baking, as it’s fine to bake it uncovered, and once your chicken is in the oven, it’s hands-free until you need to check the temperature. So you can whip up a no-cook appetizer, side dish, or dessert if you ‘re feeling ambitious.
When baking chicken do you add water?

How do you cook chicken breast so it’s not dry?
Chicken breasts do best at a high temperature (roasting) around 425-450 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows the meat to cook quickly and retain a lot of moisture. Lower temps result in a longer cooking time and a higher chance of dry chicken, which is not something anyone wants! Make sure to let your chicken REST.
