I cooked up a chicken the other day in a CI skillet along with veggies. I wanted the drippings to flavor the veggies.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23606

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.

Excellent adjustment to your recipe! I'll have to try it sometime...I've put potatoes and vegetables in the drip pan before but never thought of using something perforated to allow the excess fat to drain away.

Look at the big brain on Dyal...

Awesome idea, was there a difference in taste from the chicken drippings?

Awesome. I've always been concerned about the juices dripping on the veggies for health reasons, but I really have no basis for that idea. Obviously you didn't get sick? I hope?

And quit sending weird texts to me. Interrupting my happy hour. :lol:

Ha! I have the same fear but I see many do it so I guess it's ok...I guess the drippings is to me what pink pork is to others.

The heat inside the grill or smoker kills any nasties in the drippings.

+1 to what Brad said. Same concept as stuffing a turkey. The bad stuff cooks off. Sorry about interrupting your happy hour... :lol: Not my fault you didn't understand the "trampoline" joke. :P

Well the "jumpoline" text came out of nowhere and perplexed me. No worries, it didn't interrupt anything important.

Dyal, that is an inspired meal! I like it, and also that you included some oregano in the veggies. You know, I have a grill pan just like yours.But I do not have an Egg, so I cannot try your trick. :D

Thanks, beercuer! You should be able to do this on your grill as well. As long as you set it up as an indirect cook, you should be fine!
