Roasted Chicken Recipe

There are a million tips and tricks out there to get a really juicy crispy roasted chicken, and we’ve tried just about all of them. It’s hard to go wrong with a roasted chicken; they are pretty much always delicious, but this one is definitely the juiciest, most delicious roasted chicken we’ve ever had!

The secret to this recipe is an unconventional roasting pan. Using the tube of a bundt or tube pan to get the chicken to sit vertically in the oven allows the meat to cook evenly, so the white meat won’t dry out. And I’m not actually totally sure of the science behind it, but this was the best roasted chicken ever. It was absolutely worth the easy extra step.

Try this roasted chicken recipe tonight. You will not regret it.
