Surprise Your Friends with Solar “Barbecued” Chicken
Yes, maybe it’s still winter, but why not plan ahead for a summertime backyard bash? You can make barbecued chicken in a solar oven and shock those friends who may be expecting the same carcinogen– flavored meal. Check out this recipe:
2 Tbs ketchup
2 Tbs mustard
3 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp red or cayenne pepper(or freshly ground black)
“pinch” of cumin
2 Tbs molasses
approximately 2 lbs boneless & skinless chicken breasts or thighs
First, wash off the chicken as usual, in cold water, then pat dry by using a paper towel. Place it in a thin-walled dark metal covered roaster pan (2 – 3 quart) for 1 to 1 1/2 hours of good quality sunshine. Quickly remove it from the chamber and pour off the liquid. Next, mix all the ingredients for the glaze in a bowl first, before spreading it completely over both sides of the chicken parts. Put it back into the covered pot for another hour, or so. Remove your hot and steaming “masterpiece” for all to enjoy.
A great side dish for this is roasted corn on the cob, which can be simultaneously prepared with the chicken in the solar oven chamber.
