Honey Roasted Solar Chicken

Be sure to spread all of the glaze over the chicken before putting it in the Sun Oven. Unlike with a conventional oven there’s no need to baste the bird during cooking. And if you have a probe thermometer now’s the time to dig it out of the kitchen drawer.

Solar Chicken Stew for Later

Chicken Thighs Provence

After enjoying yesterday’s solar “fried” chicken for lunch there was still enough sunshine to keep the Sun Oven busy. I still had some uncooked thighs that I used for this stew. When it was done I divided it up into single portions to be frozen for later in the week.

Solar Drumsticks to Go

Unlike with a conventional oven, Sun Oven roasted poultry needs to be cooked in a covered pan. To create a lid for a rectangular baking dish simply cover it tightly with tin foil and then a dark tea towel, or if you prefer to be able to see the food while it cooks, use an oven bag. To keep the skin from getting soggy place a rack in the pan and set the chicken pieces on top.

These solar roasted drumsticks are good warm or at room temperature and are great for packed lunches or picnics – and cats like them too!

Sun Oven Roasted Drumsticks

8 drumsticks, rinsed and patted dry

2 tablespoons olive oil
