  • Summary

    This cumin- and paprika-spiced number gets added punch from an addictively tangy green sauce and a crisp, bright avocado and cucumber salad. Spatchcocking—an easy and fun technique that involves removing the backbone to “flatten” the bird before cooking—makes for quick roasting and produces juicy results.

    Ingredients

    • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 2 lemons
    • 1 (4-4 1/2-pound) whole chicken
    • 1 cup (packed) cilantro leaves with tender stems
    • 1–2 medium jalapeños, coarsely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 English hothouse or 2 Persian cucumbers, cubed
    • 1 firm-ripe avocado, cubed
    • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
