  • Preheat grill to two-zone heating to 350 degrees F.
  • Spatchcock the kitchen by cutting out the backbone with sharp kitchen shears on both sides of the backbone.
  • Drizzle both sides with olive oil.
  • Season on both sides with Hey Grill Hey Signature Chicken Seasoning
  • Place chicken on indirect heat on the grill and cook for approximately 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 145 degrees F.
  • Transfer chicken to direct heat side of the grill. Skin side down if you want grill mark on the top of chicken. If you would like to keep your chicken intact, place it bone side down.
  • Grill on direct heat for 5-7 minutes, or until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees F.
  • Remove from heat to cutting board or serving platter and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • Serve!
