I cooked up a chicken the other day in a CI skillet along with veggies. I wanted the drippings to flavor the veggies.
The veggies were a little bit too mushy, so last night I thought I'd experiment with a way to get the flavor of the chicken, without making the veggies too greasy.
I used a grilling pan for the potatoes and carrots. They were seasoned with some EVOO, S&P, Oregano and Minced Garlic. The grilling pan has holes all through it, so I figured this would allow the veggies to roast up without becoming mushy.
I prefer the Spatchcock method for whole chickens, so I did that this time, and placed half of a grilling basket on top of the pan of veggies. I put the Chicken on top of that, so the veggies would get basted with the drippings.
This definitely turned out much better this time, and the veggies had great flavor.
