How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 450°. Wrap the center pillar of a 10-inch Bundt pan with foil.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, toss the sausages with all of the peppers, the onions, the 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the oregano. Season with salt and pepper and add to the pan. 

Step 3    

Brush the chicken with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, the remaining 1 tablespoon of oregano and the lemon zest. Perch the chicken on the pan by inserting the center pillar into the cavity. 

Step 4    

Roast the chicken for about 1 hour, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the inner thigh registers 155°. Transfer to a board; let rest for 15 minutes.

Step 5    

Transfer the sausages, peppers, onions and pan juices to a platter. Carve the chicken and arrange on the platter. Serve.
