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!
So forgive! And I’ll do my best to balance out the subpar recipe pics with my peaceful white kitchen.

Chicken Recipe & Kitchen Tour
Easy Roast Chicken in Bundt Pan With Lime & Thyme
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
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 lime, zested and juiced
salt & pepper
Arrange oven rack to lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bundt pan with nonstick spray and cover the tube hole with foil. Add the potatoes to the pan, sprinkle 2/3 of the garlic on potatoes then and drizzle one tsp. olive oil on top. Season with salt and pepper. In small bowl, mix together remaining garlic, olive oil, citrus salt, lime zest, and thyme. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and position cavity atop the foil tube in middle of bundt pan. Rub skin with herb-oil mixture. Place in oven and roast 1 1/2-2 hrs. (a thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh should reach at least 165 degrees). Remove potatoes with slotted spoon. Let chicken rest 10 minutes before carving. Strain remaining liquid and warm in saucepan with lime juice until heated through. Serve alongside chicken and potatoes.
