The technique of "spatchcocking" is to first butterfly the game hen, remove the backbone and then break the breastbone so that it will lay flat. This method exposes more skin, which crisps up nicely at a higher temperature. Along with Morrocan spices mixed herbs and a lemon rub marinade, this creates tender breast meat and juicy and flavorful drumsticks, all done in less time. Serve with warm berries, roasted tomatoes, tomato oil and arugula.
