Brick Chicken with Rosé Wine and Bacon

The brick is not a gimmic the Russians call it Chicken Tabaka" and it is popular in Italian cooking .In James Beard's cookbook he calls it "spatchcocked" chicken .It helps sear it and flattenit it so that it comes out crispy. You can buy a cast iron press mine even has the ridges for grill marks The only thing about this recipe that is different is that it is using one big chicken. I make mine with cornish hens. Very pretty presentation !
