Oven Bags/Cooking Time

Discussion in 'Food and nutrition' started by Not Available, Feb 20, 2004.

  1. Hi Group.

    I have a quick question:

    I'm going to bake chicken using a cooking bag. Should I decrease or increase the cooking time
    specified by the recipe? The recipe does not call for a cooking bag, however, I want the chicken to
    come out a little jucier than normal.

    Thanks!

    Decrease. Your chicken will cook much faster.

    I've used cooking bags for turkeys for years... a twelve # turkey is done in a little less than 3
    hours. Therefore, my guess on a 3 # chicken will be about 45 minutes or so...?

    I frequently use bags to roast chicken in the sandwich oven. i don't change the timen but I like
    chicken weel-done and it is usually falling apart at the full time. And moist.

    May I suggest that for a juicier chicken, you can roast at a higher temp and shorter time, without a
    bag. Or, best of all, brine the chicken for several hours or overnight, drain, rinse, dry, and then
    roast - juiciest chicken you will ever have.

    Follow the cooking times that come on the instruction guide with your cooking bags or simply don't
    use a cooking bag for this particular recipe.

    Neither or those is the best solution...

    I use cooking bags frequently for the same reason - to insure a moist product. I _always_ follow the
    original recipe for time and temperature, but occasionally reduce the total quantity of liquid if
    the recipe calls for large amounts which are expected to reduce in the cooking process - they won't
    reduce much in the cooking bag.

    One caveat... Every cooking bag I've ever seen or used warns against temperatures above 375°F and
    usually recommends 325-350°F. If your recipe specifies a higher temperature, reduce it.
