Bundt Pan Roast Chicken with Potatoes

If you love roast chicken but hate that the underside isn’t as crispy as the top, you’ll love this technique. The Bundt pan helps the chicken stand up on its base, so hot air can circulate and cook it on all sides. The juices then drip into the potatoes, infusing them with herby, savory flavor.
