This is a bag that keeps the moisture in the bag and not floating around the oven. It is used when cooking food especially meat in an oven. The bag does the same job as basting. The bag should not touch the heating part of the oven or the racks because it can melt or catch fire.

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!

At what temperatures can an oven bag resist without burning or leaking?

Most oven bags are made of a very heat resistant plastic or naylon so they can stand cooking in the oven at very high temperatures. Most companies write on the box the maximum temperature that the bag can stand without breaking, melting or leaking. However i'd suggest not cooking over 180 or 200 degrees celsius, especially for more than one hour, because the bags tend to leak a little bit.
In case there is a need for a long cooking at high temperature i'd suggest placing two bags one into the other, and then placing the whole thing on an alluminium tray or the ceramic or pyrex container where the food will be served (if it can go in the oven). This way, if both bags end up having little holes and the juice or sauce leaks, it will be caught by the tray and it can be reused, instead of dirtying the oven.

What can i cook in an oven bag?

An oven bag is a very useful kitchen tool for many kinds of food. The most common is meat. For example chicken comes out tender and tasty, without drying in the process. But you can use an oven bag also to make vegetables, fish and many other kinds of food that come out better when their own moisture stays in the bag.

How do I prevent leakage from oven bags?

I suggest cooking food into oven bags at maximum 180 degrees celsius to prevent leakage, and for less than one hour. However it's always a good idea to put a tray or container under the bag so that in case there is some leakage, the sauce can be retrieved and it won't burn on the oven's floor. Another solution to prevent leakage is putting two bags one into the other, so to provide double protection.
In any case, whatever temperature you cook at or for however long, never put the bag too close to the sides of the oven or too close to its top or bottom. Closeness to very hot surfaces raises the chances of melting the plastic and therefore causing leakage.

What temp for turkey done ?

Always use an oven bag is used to promote even cooking.

Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power) for 7 to 9 minutes per pound rotating dish every 15 minutes. Not recommended for turkey over 12 pounds
Use an instant-read thermometer after cooking. Turkey is done when thermometer reads 180 degrees to 185 degrees F for whole turkey or 170 degrees to 175 degrees F for turkey breast. Insert thermometer through **** in oven bag into inner thigh for whole turkey or into thickest part of breast for turkey breast.
For easy slicing, let stand 10 minutes after removing from microwave oven. To open, carefully cut or **** top of oven bag. NOTE Microwave directions were tested in 600 to 700-watt microwaves. Higher or lower wattage ovens may need adjustment in cooking times.
