How to cook a full roast chicken dinner

Post  5tevie on 26.12.11 11:24

Hello there one and all.
I hope Santa was good to you and brought you what you needed. He brought me a Halogen oven which I had been hinting at for a while but the recipe book that came with it was dire.
Who am I?
I'm an oldish chap with a wife of almost 30 years and neither of us is in the best of health though we try to get by as best we can. I like cooking as long as it comes out of a tin but 'er indoors comes out in a rash if she smells food cooking so that's not a great combination (but she's OK to eat it)so I tend to cook when she legs it to the Bingo, Very Happy
So anyway, she's heading that way tonight so I plan on doing a full chicken dinner if my new skills are up to it.
Here is what I have .......
A halogen oven marked AP on the lid which has two sets of wire "trays". One is high and one low judging by other types I have seen. It also has a chrome ring that stretches the hight of the cooker by 4 inches and a set of tongs with a lid stand as well.
The lid itself has 2 dials. One for temperature and one for the length of cooking time. There is a wire leading to a 3 pin mains socket and apart from that, that's mostly it. The only other thing is a safety device which won't let the power work until the handle on the lid is pressed firmly into place.
That's all on the cooker side barring all the normal kitchen gubbins.
On the ingredients side of things we have a 1.9 kilo chicken with a Pork, sag & onion stuffing. Veggie-wise there is a big bag of carrots, leeks, and other stuff + enough potatoes to feed an army.

So there we have it. I Googled "How to cook a full chicken dinner using a halogen oven" which brought me here but the recipe section won't allow me access 'cos I'm one of those fuddy-duddies that use a Mac and Macs aren't accepted here . Shocked

So here's what I hope will happen.
One of you kind folk will take time out to tell me where and when I should add ingredients to the cooker and then tell me a temp and cooking time. Much easier, if it's allowed, is that somebody could copy/paste the recipe straight onto this page.
That way, I can maybe cook the full Monty Christmas dinner, albeit a day late (we were at our son's place)

ps ... I like the way that the light goes on and off. Sitting in the dining room and looking towards the kitchen, it looks like aliens have landed . Smile

Thanks all,
Steve (the gabby one)

Welcome Steve

No-one has posted a recipe for everything you wish to cook in one go. Here is a link to one of Reetas previous answers which provides further links to a recipe for chicken and veg and a cooking time chart.
If you type , for example 'chicken' into the search box you should see all the previous posts on the subject.
Good Luck rendeer

Embarassed Steve - too much Christmas spirit - I do apologise.
I'm glad you muddled through and hope your meal was a good one.

No worries. I had a stab at it anyway and it sort of worked.
I put the chicken on to the low rack at 200 degrees C for 60 minutes starting off with the breast facing down and turning after 30 minutes. At the 60 minute marker I did the whole sequence again. It all seemed to be going well and as time passed the juices produced by a skewer got clearer and clearer. I did the last "turn" to breast side up after just 20 minutes and the underside looked like a proper Cordon Bleu chef had produced it and not a retired army chap. 20 minutes later and the job was done. It was perfect, even if I do say so myself.
While that was all going on I cooked the veggies in a pan on top of the hob and followed the instructions on here for fluffy roast potatoes. That way, after allowing the chicken time to "rest", it was all more or less ready at the same time.
We ended up eating rather later than usual at about 10:30 pm but it was a small price to pay for some excellent nosh. I think my first job is to go shopping for better Halogen cook books. (and maybe a better halogen cooker)

clap Steve

I'm glad you had such a great result with your chicken.

I don't know about the Mac thing, Reeta deals with the technical side, I simply help with the day to day messages - as and when I have time Question

I like you are having my xmas "dinner" late as we were at my daughters.Ive never used one before,and I was just standing there looking at the potatoes in awe lol.....I wonder how many other people do the same on their first going off.
Anyway good luck....and good cooking ;-)

Time to 'fess up.
My halogen cooker was bought on eBay for £6. 88. I had to pay £6 postage but it was brand new and never used although it didn't come in the original box. The only markings that I can see are AP on the lid. I'll take a picture and post it tomorrow.
I couldn't actually watch the potatoes this time round but I'll make time next time.
Cheers,
Steve
