Bundt Pan Roast Chicken
Quote:
 
Ingredients

3 cloves garlic
2 carrots, chopped
1 onion, quartered
1/2 lb. yukon gold potatoes, quartered
extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 large bunch fresh thyme
1 large bunch fresh rosemary
1 3-4 lb. chicken, gizzards removed
1 lemon, sliced

Directions

Preheat oven to 425° and cover the hole of the Bundt pan with foil.

In the bowl of a large Bundt pan, combine garlic, carrots, onion, and potatoes. Toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Scatter sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary on top of the vegetables.

Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season the inside of the cavity generously with salt and pepper, then stuff it with the lemon halves, a few sprigs of thyme, and a few sprigs of rosemary. Rub olive oil all over the skin of the chicken, then season generously with salt and pepper.

Place the chicken in the middle of the Bundt pan, breast side up. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and skin is golden, 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes. Let chicken rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with roasted vegetables and extra pan juices.

Thoughts:

1) I used red spuds, 'cos that's what I had. I also didn't have any fresh thyme, so sue me.

2) Even after an hour and a half, the skin wasn't as browned as I would have liked. It looks more browned in the 2nd picture than it really was. I stuck it under the broiler to crisp it up a bit.

3) The chicken was remarkably juicy and tender, and not underdone. Quite the surprise.

4) For all the effort involved, as well as the price, I would have probably been better off just getting a "rotisserie chicken" for $6 and made some ad-hoc veggies on the side.

Looks great, although it does prompt a couple obvious jokes...

It's basically a variation on "beer-can" chicken for those that don't have a grill.

Oh boy, now you've done it. IIRC, Luke's Dad has strong opinions about beer can chicken. :(blue:(

All my grilling/smoking forum buddies say beercan is a waste, that you should just spatchcock them and cook them flat.
