A bag full of chicken - Quick and easy recipe for chicken in oven bags

A few weeks ago i had to quickly make a big tray of chicken legs and thighs and had no time to be paying much attention to it.
Therefore I took a big oven bag and improvised a recipe. It came out delicious! Here is what i did:
I set the chicken (about 15 legs and thighs) in a big oven bag and i poured in it a half cup of olive oil and some spices (of each spice i spread around the amount of a teaspoon circa): black papper, tumeric, grill mix, sweet paprika and a bit of sugar and salt.
I also added some little diced potatoes and sweet potatoes, i closed the bag real tight and i started shaking it and making sure that all the oil and spices were covering every part of the chicken.
Then i set the bag on an aluminium tray (so that when it leaked it wouldn't stain the oven) and put it in the oven at about 160 degrees Celsius for about an hour until the chicken looked well cooked and the potatoes soft.
I suggest flipping the bag every once in a while so to mix the contents and allow the food to cook uniformly. I also suggest to avoid putting the bag too close to the sides of the oven and to it's top because it might burn little holes in the bag and leak.
The chicken cooked this way will stay moist and soft, and at the same time intensely tasty!
Bon Apetit!

How long do i deep fry bone in chicken, and what temp ?


Bone-in chicken requires slightly more time to cook than boneless cuts. The average time to deep fry wingdings is around four minutes. Whole wings take about 10 minutes, and thighs and legs require 12 minutes. Bring chicken to room temperature before cooking to use these time estimates; along with following times for cooking, watch for the color of the chicken's breading to develop a deep brown color. Fry chicken in a high smoking point oil heated to 350 degrees F and remove pieces as they become golden brown and float. Check internal temperature using a kitchen thermometer to ensure doneness; internal temperature should register at 165 F.

If I am checking chicken to see if it is cooked using a thermometer, what temperature should it get to and does it make a difference if I am cooking breast or thigh?


Breasts and whole chicken should reach a temperature of around 165 degrees. The thighs and wings need to be cooked until the juices inside of them run clear.

53udx10b hitachi rear projection big screen. replaced convergence chips 2 months ago. Worked awesome. Started having power issues 3 weeks ago. Turn on - kicks right back off. Used to be able to turn on multiple times and it would stay on after a few tries. Now it will not stay on. Relay kicks on then off.


Sounds like the problem started out with an intermittent solder connection possibly on the deflection PWB unless the power relay has a bad connection or is breaking down under load. If it is not the power relay, I would check the connections under the deflection board - paying close attention to the area from T701 and T752 including the Horizontal output Transistor for a short. You also have a possibility of defective filter capacitors causing the problem as well.

HOW LONG DO I OOK HAMBURGER PATTIES USING THE GEORGE FOREMAN GRILLING MACHINE


I can do better than that here you go look at this.What have I personally prepared on my George Foreman grill?

Steaks
Hamburgers
Hot Dogs
Boneless Pork Loins
Country Style Ribs
Boneless Chicken Breast
Bone in Chicken Thighs
Bone in Chicken Breasts
Chicken Legs
Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwhiches
Italian Sausage along with Green Peppers and Onions

This unit has a floating hinge which allows me to cook thicker cuts of meat and they cook evenly.

I even use it to reheat the meat leftover from the day before, it heats them quickly and sears in the flavor without drying the meat out. I prefer reheating with my grill over microwaving.


One day last summer I was in the middle of cooking BBQ Chicken on my Charcoal Grill. We were having a family outing and out of the clear blue sky it just started to rain... Well I had no choice but to finish cooking all the chicken i had started on my handy little George Foreman grill. This took a little time because the amounts of chicken I had on the grill and could only fit just a few pieces at a time. but it was a lifesaver... saved our picnic. Which gave me the idea to precook the chicken on my George Foreman Grill then finish cooking it over Charcoal. I found using this method takes alot of time away from having to stand by the grill basting and turning. All in all, to me it seems that within 30 mins the Chicken is fully cooked compared to anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and your still guessing and cutting into the meat to see if its done.

The Champ also supplies you with some of his famous grilling recipes which I have not yet tried because I have my own way of seasoning my foods. Although they sound delicious!

Here are some examples of his suggested Cooking Chart for this Grill: Cooked Medium (160 F) to give you an Idea as to how quickly it does cook.


Salmon Filet 3 minutes
Salmon Steaks 6 minutes
White Fish 5 minutes
8 oz Turkey burgers 6 minutes
8 oz Hamburgers 9 minutes
Chicken Breasts 9 minutes
NY Strip Steak 7 minutes
Pork loins 5 minutes

Is there anything you found you didnt like?

Yes,one thing I must admit is I do not like is the fact it does not have a shut off switch.

I've learned that if you wait until the light on the unit is OFF then you are less likely to see a SPARK when you unplug the unit after use.

Back to the Positive and another important fact. Time to clean up is really a Breeze. I allow it to cool then I use the plastic spatula to scrap away any excess fat or food then I wipe with a damp paper towel. Toss away paper towel full of grease and grime and go over it a clean damp cloth, wash the tray and spatula and its ready to be put away.
