Baking in a roasting bag creates a super-tender, moist and flavor-infused chicken. The kind that falls off the bone. And of course it’s mess free—’cause, hello, I hate washing pots and stovetops!
Better yet, it’s one of those one-pot/pan dinners made in the oven so you don’t have to stand in the kitchen too long.
You’ll be amazed at how tasty chicken can be with just some spices and nothing else. Not even oil (clean eating’s the rage now, ain’t it?).
The roasting bag doesn’t allow for much moisture to escape, so a natural runoff sauce is created. The result is super-soft chicken bottoms with your potatoes and veggies sitting together in a deliciously flavored sauce.
As for more delicious simple roasting-bag recipes, be brave, try experimenting and let me know the results. You can fill the roasting bag with anything your taste buds desire, think: baby corn, eggplant, broccoli, mushrooms, etc. And you can throw in soy sauce, oil, interesting herbs/spices and other flavorings if you wish.
1. Place the vegetables in the roasting bag and top it with the chicken. Spice it according to taste: about one and a half teaspoons of salt and garlic powder, with a dash of black pepper.
2. Tie the bag closed and shake vigorously to coat everything with spices.
3. Using a fork or knife, poke some holes at the top of the roasting bag.
4. Place the roasting bag in a pan.
5. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for one and a half hours; two hours if you like it even softer.
