Spatchcocked Chicken

MikeR | Dec 2, 201402:51 PM

Sptatchcocking (removing the back bone and flattening it) seemed to be the in way to prepare a Thanksgiving turkey this year. Reading about the process and seeing the pictures brought to mind a place I used to go for lunch often when I worked in Rockville some 25 years ago.

It was in a strip along Rockville Pike toward the north end, and I'm sure had "pollo" in the name as it was a not fried chicken place before the rotisserie chicken places moved in. They had flattened chickens on the grill, and the standard lunch was a couple of tortillas, a hunk of chicken, and the instructions (on the paper placemat) to shred the chicken and wrap it in the tortillas to make tacos.

Anyone remember the place? Is it still there?
