Easy Roast Chicken in Bundt Pan With Lime & Thyme

Easy Roast Chicken in Bundt Pan With Lime & Thyme is: a novel way to roast a chicken vertically, an absolutely delicious original recipe, and a pleasure to share. BUT. Gurrrrrrl, pleez. I am no food photographer and am feelin’ my limitations. I just learned you can’t ever expect pale poultry to be ready for its closeup. Oh, for the love of crispy chicken skin – it’s easy to roast and devour a delectable chicken…just impossible to score blogworthy images!

Recipe

4 lb. whole chicken

4 potatoes, peeled & diced into 1/2″ chunks

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. citrus salt blend

Reserve Cooking Liquid

The strained cooking liquid is added to a saucepan with the juice of a lime and warmed through to serve with the chicken and potatoes.

    We have roast chicken every Sunday. This sounds like a great way to vary our recipe and I love the bundt pan method. Thanks for sharing! Best, Kim

      I’m so glad you didn’t feel too queasy seeing the pics – thank you so much. 🙂

  3. At first I thought, chicken in a bundt pan, how can this possible be? But now I see it’s a bit like the old beer can chicken idea but with a BIG, sophisticated update. Sounds really good and I especially love anything with thyme and lime, so I’m sold. Love the leftover Asian Chicken Salad idea as well, sounds like a perfect pairing.

    Michele,
    OMG, I have never heard of putting the chicken in a bundt pan. I know they put them on a can on the grill, but I like your idea better. Pinned that one.
    Love your white kitchen, so beautiful.
    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Bev

    Thank you for this! I always see these lovely chickens at the store but never ever make a whole one. At least I haven’t for a very long time. I love the bundt idea! And I love, “A bundt in the oven”! Also, I think your chicken photos are very nice. Thanks for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things!
