Have you ever tried spatchcocking? This Garlic Soy Grilled Spatchcocked Chicken is EASY and tender and so delicious! Perfect summer BBQ!
It’s grilling season and I’m ready. At our house, we grill year round, but the majority is done Spring, Summer and Winter. From chicken to seafood, steaks to fish, anything goes when we are deciding what to grill.
When we were looking for something fun and different to make recently, we came across Cornish Hens, found at Walmart in the freezer bunkers. They come in a two pack and were inexpensive. My daughter and I were excited to get them home and get to work.
We fired up the grill as soon as we got home. We were ready!
The first step was spatchcocking the chickens for the grill.
We got our lovely Cornish Hens home and went to work immediately. First, we spatchcocked the Cornish Hens, because it makes them better for grilling and allows them to lay flat. Here is a video to show you how. Have you ever tried spatchcocking a chicken for the grill? It’s super easy!
Once the Cornish Hens were ready to go from the spatchcock procedure we performed, it was time to mix up the marinade and get these babies on the grill. We made a delicious Garlic and Soy Sauce Marinade using Kikkoman Soy Sauce, because it makes the best chicken marinade!
And, make sure that you head to your local Walmart after June 1st because if your purchase Cornish Game Hens Twin Pack and a 10 oz. bottle of Kikkoman sauce, there will be a $2 off coupon. The Neck hanger coupon will be on the Kikkoman bottle beginning June 1st, while supplies last!
We marinated these babies for about an hour while we got to work on our sides and baked some homemade rolls.
They were finally ready for the grill and our mouths were already watering.
The marinade smells SO good, and we just wanted to get these babies cooked and on the table.
We grilled the Cornish hens about 40-45 minutes or so, pressing down on them with the spatula to keep them cooking evenly and flat.
Finally, they were ready. We served them over a mixture of garlic rice and quinoa.
These Garlic Soy Grilled Spatchcocked Chicken were absolutely amazing! Tender, flavorful and the perfect summer dinner.
