Just like Apartment Therapy sends out a daily newsletter, one of their affiliate sites, The Kitchn, sends out a weekly newsletter. Last week, the topic was, “The Naughty Way to Roast a Chicken”. Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan explains how to roast a chicken in a bundt pan using some very risque cooking lingo!
Here’s Sara’s chicken.
So, I’ve never cooked a whole chicken, but as I’m trying to branch out and be a little more daring in the kitchen… I decided to try to roast a chicken the naughty way!
I picked up some potatoes, carrots, onion, and a chicken (about 3.75 lbs.). Ingredients were only about $15.00! Pretty good price… pretty great meal.
So, here’s me preparing my chicken. I rubbed it with salt, pepper, seasoned pepper, lemon pepper, parsley and basil.
And…. here’s how it turned out:
Voila! Before I do it again, I plan to learn how to carve this birdie!
When my brother and I were younger, we started a Thanksgiving tradition of naming the turkey. There was Bob, Joe, Bob again, and my brother once named it after a boy who had just broken my heart! We enjoyed watching it cook in the oven that year! I think we decided to name the turkey because when you see an actual whole animal carcass, it makes you feel a little more guilt about eating meat rather than when you see it on a sandwich, as a slice or in some other form. So, as you can guess, I began feeling a bit guilty about roasting my chicken, especially after I rammed his bum over the bundt pan protrusion! And what shall I name this one? How about “Dinner”?!
