A question about a recipe: Wishbone Roast Chicken with Herb Butter
I have a question about step 4 on the recipe "Wishbone Roast Chicken with Herb Butter" from monkeymom. It says:
"Place chicken feet side down on tube insert that is placed into a 9 in cake pan. This forms a stable base that will catch the drippings without leaking out."
Are there other basic pans or kitchen implements that I could use to create the same effect as the tube insert in the 9 in. cake pan? Is the idea to catch the drippings but not have the chicken sitting in the drippings while it is being roasted in the oven?
