• A chicken prepared by removing the wish bone, severing the leg sinews, cutting horizontally from below the rear point of the breast over the tops of the legs down to the wing joints without removing the breasts, bending the breasts towards the neck end and snapping the backbone so that the point of the breast extends forward, flattening and neatening the whole chicken. When placed skin side up it should resemble a toad. It is then seasoned, brushed with oil and cooked under the grill for approximately 15 minutes per side.
