My bundt pan can do no wrong. I will defend her till my dying day, or something like that. I didn’t buy myself a bundt pan until I had been married for like 7 years because I figured it was a one-trick-pony sort of kitchen tool. I was so wrong. I use my bundt pan ALL THE TIME. I adore bundt cakes. I secretly wish that bundt cakes and cake pops could get in a schoolyard brawl so that the bundt cake could show the cake pops who’s boss and cake pops would slink away in shame never to be seen again…but that’s a rant for another day.
I typically always use my bundt pan for sweet treats, but that changed today. We’ve all heard of beer can chicken, and I can’t tell you how incredibly unappetizing that sounds to me, but I can appreciate the technique of cooking the chicken upright to allow more exposed surface area for even browning. This Bundt Pan Roast Chicken technique allow you to achieve the crispy skin and juicy flavor that you would find in a rotisserie chicken, while also giving your chicken really great posture. It looks sort of hilarious, doesn’t it? I couldn’t resist letting him sit upright on the platter. Anyhow, it was an interesting technique that was worth trying. Would I normally sere a whole chicken sitting upright looking all silly and headless? Of course not. I would carve and serve like normal, but I just thought it was so funny that he could sit up all by himself that I had to share.
