Oh, for the love of crispy chicken skin that’s quite forbidden from my diet but yummy for you, nonetheless – it’s easy to roast and devour a delectable chicken…just impossible to score blogworthy images!

Chicken in Bundt Pan With Lime & Thyme

Recipe

4-5 lb. whole chicken

Potatoes (4) peeled & diced into 1/2″ chunks

Garlic cloves (3), minced

Olive oil (1 Tbsp.)

Citrus salt blend (1 tsp.)

Dried thyme (1 tsp.)

1 lime, zested and juiced

salt & pepper

Directions

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.

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

    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

      Yep – the same ideas a beer can chicken thing. Thanks so much, 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!

    I roast a chicken every weekend. I love that it gives us two dinners and a lunch sandwich. The second night I serve it cold with a Mexican salad. Yum!
    I have to admit that we do eat some of the crispy skin. So bad for us but so good! With the Bundt pan idea, you get crispy skin all around. Hmmm 🤔
    Are the potatoes not greasy?

      They are and are off limits for me – all for the husband! Never met a Mexican or Tex Mex salad I didn’t love. 🙂
