If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I bake bread a lot. Sometimes, I feel like I could add another food item in the oven to better make use of the heat. It’s a little challenging though, as my breads bake between 450F to 500F, and most baked goods only require 350F.
I thought maybe I can do some roasted meats and since I have some chicken thighs and drumsticks on hand, I gave it a try today.
There was a lot of chicken so I made them into 2 different flavored roast chickens. Half were rubbed with Lemon Pepper seasoning and the other half with Goya Sazonador Todo.
I also added some potatoes, onions, and purple sweet potatoes tossed in olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I placed them on a large sheet tray on the top level of the oven as my breads bake in the middle. I left them in with the bread at 450F, for about 1 hour. No turning, no fussing, they were perfectly done all by themselves!
Dinner is ready the same time my bread was baking! Winner!
