Hi everyone ...

Post  tonirees on 16.01.10 14:52

Hi there, my name is Toni (with an 'i' as I am female) and I have just bought a Halogen Oven for the first time. I'm looking for recipe ideas and tips. Do I need to use browning agents when roasting a chicke, for example? I don't like insipid-looking roasts Wink

Hi Toni,

Welcome to the forum. You asked about roasting chicken. If you are happy with the colour of a roast chicken straigh out of the conventional oven then you will not need browning, otherwise you may need it. The Halogen does cook similar to a conventional oven, just a bit quicker and cleaner.

Please remember that you do need to turn the chicken over half way through the cooking time as the halogen oven cooks from the top. The bottom will still be raw if you don't turn it over. I found it best to start cooking with the chicken breast-down as this looks better when its finished.

Hope this helps.

p.s. Sorry its taken a while to get back to you, I've been working on my computer for a few days and just finalising a few settings.

Happy cooking to you

Hi John,
Thank you for your response. Well, I went ahead and roasted a large, free-range chicken in my new halogen oven this evening (at 200C) and it came out really great! All I did was season it, add some sliced onion and a little garlic to the bowl and then let the halogen oven do it's thing! I roasted it with the breast-side down to start with and then turned it over an hour later and roasted the other side for half an hour and it was absolutely delicious - tender and succulent with a crispy skin. I felt really pleased as I must admit that I had been rather anxious about the whole thing. I'll definitely be doing some more experimenting now that I know how easy it is Smile
I'm so grateful for this website as it gave me the confidence to 'go for it' this evening.
Toni

Hi Toni,

Well done with the chicken - I am so glad you didn't make the same mistake I did - I didn't realize you had to turn it over ha ha ha.

I am really pleased it turned out well for you. We are all learning here and experimenting with various ideas and recipes.

Chef Eric suggests that when you are unsure to start off with a temperature of 175C for most things. Thats a useful suggestion and it is often a case of trial and error.

Well done though.

All the best
