Remove the backbone of the chicken. Then press down on the chicken in all joints and breast plate to flatten it.

In a small bowl, mix together the rosemary, black pepper, paprika, salt, garlic, oregano, and basil. Rub the mixture under the skin of the chicken and the inside cavity.

Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat with oil, and place chicken skin side down. Place another large hot saute pan on top of the chicken, and place 4 bricks inside of the top pan to keep chicken flat.

Cook on medium-high heat, for 10 minutes on both sides.

Let the chicken sit for a couple minutes then cut it into 4 sections. 2 wing and breast sections and 2 leg thigh sections.

Ready to serve.
