Bundt Pan Grilled Chicken

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


A moist and juicy whole chicken, cooked on the grill in a bundt pan.



While working at a Natural Food Market, I was introduced to Herbamare. It is a sea salt that is blended with amazing herbs and spices. The result is truly delicious. We used it in several dishes, from roast potatoes and chicken rub, to salad dressings.

Sea salt contains calcium, magnesium, trace elements and other minerals, which are eliminated when sea salt is transformed into table salt. That's why table salt has such a bright white colour, while sea salt is not as pristine.

Since I had thawed a whole chicken for dinner, I decided to season it with the Zesty Herbamare Seasoning Salt and fresh ground pepper. I wanted to taste the wonderful flavor of the salt, on the chicken. We all agreed that even though it was so simply seasoned, it was some of the best chicken we have tasted in a long time.






Bundt Pan Grilled Chicken

1 whole chicken (mine was about 4 lbs)
1 1/2 tsp Zesty Herbamare (contains a touch of red pepper and horseradish)
fresh ground pepper
1 C Margarita mix (feel free to substitute lemon lime soda)

Preheat your grill to 400 degrees.

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place butt end of chicken over the centre spout of the bundt pan and insert the spout into the chicken; until chicken is securely in place. Season with Zesty Herbamare and fresh ground pepper. Pour the margarita drink (or liquid of choice) into bundt pan.

Place bundt pan in the centre of the grill. Depending on how many heat sources your grill has, you can turn the centre heat source to low, while keeping the left and right heat sources to medium high. Grill chicken for approximately 1 1/2- 2 hrs; until the internal temperature taken in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 170 degrees.

Using oven mitts, remove bundt pan from the grill and set on a trivet to rest for 20 minutes.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
