Paleo / Primal / Bacon / CleanEats Lifestyle
Now I know some of you have an old Bundt pan laying around. I have personally never had one or cared to make anything involved in a circle shaped pan. I honestly detest angel food cakes, some of my family members might know why. So back to the bundt pan, it creates a perfectly cooked and crispy chicken. It mimics a rotisserie chicken because it gets cooked on all sides, it doesn’t lay in its own juices for the duration of the roasting period! I mean who doesn’t love crispy chicken skin? It is the best part! I didn’t have a bundt pan laying around but found one at my local kitchen store for under $10.
go in from the neck area of the chicken and separate skin from breast meat with your fingers
Going in from the neck area means you will less likely tear the skin as opposed to going in from the bottom side of the breast
Take compound butter in fingers and spread evenly under skin. Be careful not to tear the skin.
Place the bundt pan in another pan to catch juices
Place chicken upright on bundt pan and roast in oven at normal temps and times that you normally bake chicken for.
Stuffing the chicken skin and roasting upright made some of the best tasting and juiciest chicken I have ever tasted! You can add different herbs and spices to your compound butter to get the flavors you like. I think next time I will be experimenting with fresh citrus and herbs! Go out and buy a bundt pan and cook your chicken with it. It will change your views on the boring old roasted chicken. Also if you wanted to add some root veggies to the bundt pan it would cook in the chicken juices.
