A slow roast chicken?

A chicken roast slowly and gently: that’s how!

I was inspired by the recipe found on this blog and as usual, I simplified while keeping a delightful result!

Preparation for a tasty chicken roasted at low temperature

slow roast chicken

  • Preheat oven to 210°C/410°F,
  • Sprinkle chicken inside and out with water,
  • Dress according to your desire: salt, pepper, herbs …
  • Put in the oven at 210°C/105°F, and lower the temperature at 90°C/ 195°F (once the oven door is closed).

Cooking time according to the chicken’s weight

  • 3 hours for a 1 kg chicken
  • Allow 10 more minutes per 100g. additional
  • or 10 minutes less per 100g. less.
  • On the last 5-10 minutes, put grill position for a more crispy skin.

1kg500 chicken: 3h + 5×10 min = 3h50 including 5-10 minutes in grill position at the end

800g chicken: 3h – 2×10 min = 2h40 including 5-10 minutes in grill position at the end

Try this kind of cooking for maximum flavor without drying the meat!


What about you? Which meat do you cook at low temperature?
