Solar Oven Cooking

I absolutely LOVE my solar oven. I don’t use any fuel so I am saving money and it doesn’t heat up my house to cook. My parents, sister and I all have one and have been experimenting with different recipes. Chicken is the favorite in our house.

On tonight’s menu – boneless chicken breasts with sun-dried tomatoes and portabella mushrooms sprinkled with Montreal seasonings and Rosemary Red potatoes with a spritz of extra virgin olive oil.Imagine the solar oven as a “no-plug in” crockpot. It takes about the same amount of time to load it up as a crock-pot and even the 10 year old can put on the reflectors!! You don’t add any water! It cooks in it’s natural juices!
