Sittin' Chicken Temp?

edited 1:10AM in EggHead Forum
I have one of those sittin' chicken thingies. The instructions call for 250 degrees. That makes no sense to me. I roast chickens all of the time in the oven, I have an All Clad roasting pan with an attachment that has small reservoir that holds liquid and the bird hangs suspended over the roasting pan. And I have cooked those at 425 degrees, makes for a nice crisp skin and I put carrets, red taters, and onions in the pan portion and the drippens' cook them to perfection. So would I be completly out of my little pea brain to cook the yard bird at 425 degees with the sitten chicken? Just wondering before I turn a chicken into cinders. Thanks (as you can tell I am not known for my spelling :laugh: )

    I usually do mine at 375 on top of a cast iron pan, real happy with the results( I can't spell either).

  • 350 to 400 here and no complaints so far.

    I can't spell either but, I do know how to check my spelling. ;)Tim

    I am going to do one at 600° in the next while.

    250° extreme raised grid.

    325° - 350°



    When the bird is cooked to 165° the breast is always nice an moist on any of the cooks.

    I am going to do a 600° test in the next while.

    Mac, I can't spell for nothing. I also have poor grammar. There is no spell check on the forum but my browser has a spell check that I use. It don't matter to me if you don't check your spelling. You mentioned it first.

    Hope your chicken comes out great. ;) Tim

    Longrifle, firefox has a spell checker and I believe a grammar checker, which I obviously don't use. Chrome and I believe IE9 has a spell checker also. Folks shouldn't be using older versions of IE.
