One of the most popular products we’ve  introduced this year has been the Wine Chicken Cooker

Wine Chicken Cooker

The handcrafted stone cooker cradles the bird, while the wine of your choice steams the inside, allowing its flavors to steep throughout the meat. Many of us have tried it at home and yielded moist, delicious results. You can even get creative with other beverages. A member of our staff used Red Stripe beer with curry seasoning!

Here are 5 creative recipes you can use, to make the most of your chicken cooker:

Chef’s Tip: Always start your chicken in a cold oven i.e. , do not preheat.

Thoroughly mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Add 1/2 of the mixture to the well of the chicken cooker and the other 1/2 of the mixture to season the outside of the chicken. Plug the chicken with a piece of aluminum foil. Place the chicken into a “cold” oven and bring the temperature up together. Cook at 350F uncovered for 1 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with the drippings.

When finished, the internal temperature should be 180F when taken at the meatiest part of the thigh without touching the bone. Let chicken rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
