Chicken in DCB in the oven -- not microwave

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by crunchyconmama, Jan 5, 2009.

  1. HI All,

    Do you know how long I would bake a whole chicken in the DCB in the oven? I don't have a microwave (nor do I want one). I've had it in the oven now at 350 for an hour but it doesn't look done.

    Any advice is welcome! TIA! Elissa

    I usually bake mine for @ 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I leave the lid on for the first hour then remove it for the rest of the time. If i starts to look too brown I put it back on.

    Before the DCB, we had a bowl/lid that fit over the 9x13, I use to bake a whole chicken in it 400 for an hour. Taking the lid off for the last 15 min to brown.

    From the 2006 F/W Seasons Best:

    The Pampered Chef ®
    Juiciest Roast Chicken

    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
    1 whole chicken (3 1/2-4 1/2 pounds)
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    Preheat oven to 450ºF. Lightly spray Deep Covered Baker with oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Combine flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, black pepper and thyme in Prep Bowl; mix well. Remove and discard giblets and neck from chicken cavity. Rinse chicken with cold water; pat dry with paper towels. Trim excess fat using Kitchen Shears, if necessary. Tie ends of legs together with cotton string. Lift wing tips up toward neck, then tuck under back of chicken.

    Brush outside of chicken with oil using Chef's Silicone Basting Brush; coat completely with seasoning mixture. Place chicken, breast side up, in baker. Roast, uncovered, 50-60 minutes or until Pocket Thermometer registers 180ºF in thickest part of thigh and juices run clear. Remove from oven; let chicken stand 10 minutes before carving.

    Can't say I have ever cooked a chicken at 450 myself, seems a little high! I'll have to try it.

    I made it just last week! (and always made it this way until I was brave enough to try the 30 minute chicken.)

    It is very good - turns out beautiful. If it looks like it's getting too dark, I just put the lid on for the last 10 minutes or so. I was a bit skeptical too of the the high temp, but it must be the magic of the DCB - it turns out great - and I had plenty of pan juices for gravy too!

    I am bumping this for easier reference ... it is getting made tomorrow.

    Last time I got a whole chicken, my roomate a) put NO spices on it and b) made it in the fluted stone. This time, I insisted that it would get made MY WAY and since I am working day shift tomorrow, I have already prepared the spice mix, put it on the chicken and put the baker in the fridge.

    One question ... since the baker will be refrigerated, do you think it's necessary for the baker to be taken out of the fridge for 30 minutes or so to get to room temperature? And/or ... should we NOT bother with pre-heating the oven?
Have something to add?
