Playing Chicken with the All American Sun Oven
If you haven’t yet seen the All American Sun Oven in action, here’s our version. It’s larger capacity oven chamber, as well as its features to adjust its angle, the focus “eye” and other features, make it a joy to use. From its easy open “door” to its “levelator”, the All American Sun Oven promises much and delivers same.
For today’s demonstration, we made a simple meal of chicken drumsticks and vegetables. Here’s the recipe:
9 small chicken drumsticks
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 cup chopped carrots
1 large potato, diced (we used a redskin)
1/4 cup of chicken broth
1 tsp sea salt
dash of fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of garlic
2 tbsp of olive oil
4 shakes of Italian seasoning
First coat the drumsticks in olive oil, then apply the seasonings. Put all into 3 quart dark metal pan (graniteware).
Mix up everything and place in solar oven (preheated). With good sunshine, or even with passing clouds as we had, it will cook through in 3 – 4 hours. We refocused the All American Sun Oven 3 times for the best results. The temperature stayed around 300 degrees the majority of the time. Bon Apetit!
In 3 1/2 hours of good sunshine…still with passing clouds, it turned out great!
