We were talking in our slimming world group on Monday and one of our group (Hi Bisha) was saying she uses roasting bags to cook chicken, I have used these bags for many years, I see all the adverts for the 'cook in a bag ' products to use for chicken and beef etc and just think they seem expensive when you can do it yourself much cheaper and also know exactly whats going into your food and make it syn free : )
I bought these roasting bags in ASDA yesterday for £1.28 for 10 which is the price for just one of those other seasoning bags. It is easy to use these just add whatever spices and seasonings you like tie up the bag (there are ties provided) and pop in the oven for 30 minutes.
For this recipe I used red onion, salt, pepper, thyme and a little clementine zest but you can use anything you like paprika, oregano, curry powder anything! I would say add plenty of seasoning more than you might think you'd need as it makes juices which can dilute the flavours. The bag seals in all the juices so you dont need any oil the only thing is that it does look a bit anaemic as it doesn't really roast but the chicken is so moist and juicy I can live with that ..
Seasoned chicken in a bag
Chicken thighs (fat removed) or chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1 large red onion (sliced)
zest of 2 clemetines
Just place everything in the bag and move the bag around so you make sure the meat is covered well with the seasoning. Place on a baking tray or dish (in case of leaks) and roast at gas 5 / 190/375 for 30 minutes.
