Cooking Chicken In A Halogen Oven

Whole Roast Chicken In Your Halogen Oven

morningware halogen oven with chickenA lovely golden roast chicken in a halogen oven is one of the most common images that you’ll find if you’re doing any research into halogen oven recipes or halogen ovens in general. And it’s hardly surprising that so many halogen oven manufacturers and recipe book publishers use it to promote their product, it’s a mouth-watering visual. Looks great, doesn’t it?

It’s hardly surprising that whole roast chicken is one of the first things that many people cook when they get their nice new halogen oven. It’s a family favorite (who doesn’t love roast chicken?) and, with a halogen oven, it’s easy to cook a whole meal in one “pot”.


Here’s a short video which shows Chef Tony Scruggs’ approach to cooking chicken using a Fagor halogen oven. The Fagor oven has the¬†widely used glass bowl with lid arrangement,¬†and this video demonstrates the use of the extender ring.

Whichever type of halogen oven you prefer, you should be able to get wonderfully tasty roast chicken every time. Personally, I think that the tip of starting with the chicken breast down and then turning it over half way through cooking is a good one. Otherwise, you can end up with the skin on the breast really quite crispy.

Of course, if that’s the way you like then that’s fine too! Bottom line, you can’t really go wrong with roast chicken in a halogen oven. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s healthy.

Here’s one final video just to provide a little variety. This one has been uploaded to YouTube by a home chef, it’s not associated with any manufacturer. YouTube is a great source of recipes – for halogen ovens and traditional ovens – and many home chefs upload some really great recipes. This one is for tandoori roast chicken with roast potatoes. Looks good to me.

Healthy Chicken Dinners From Your Halogen Oven

Chicken is a great source of protein. It’s inherently better for you than eating red meat and cooking it in your halogen oven can make it even healthier.

Let the juices run out of your roast chicken, or you can even enjoy breaded chicken which is air fried in the halogen oven rather than deep fried or pan fried. And if you fancy some french fries with it that’s fine – just air fry those too.
