Solar Roasted Orange Chicken Quarters

Chicken fixed in the solar oven is extra scrumptuous, in my opinion. So, whenever I have a chance to try out some new idea, I jump at it. This vegetable-herb mixture is gently absorbed into the chicken and good enough for company -- if you're in the mood for sharing! Easy to prepare and cooked by the sun, I'm sure this is what Little Tommy Tucker wanted when the singing stopped. 

Solar Roasted Orange Chicken Quarters

4 chicken leg quarters
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
3 green onions, finely chopped up to six inches above bulb
1 celery stalk with leaves, finely chopped
1 hot pepper, finely chopped
4 Tablespoons butter
1 tsp Chinese spices
Juice of 1 orange
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp stevia

While solar oven is preheating, finely chop all vegetables. Wash chicken quarters and arrange in baking dish, skin side down. In medium bowl, combine butter with spices, orange juice, salt and stevia. When thoroughly blended, add chopped vegetables.  Divide mixture in quarters and spread evenly over each leg quarter.

Cover and bake in solar oven for 70 minutes. Remove cover and turn leg quarters over; baste with sauce, leave uncovered, and continue to bake for another 35-40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 170F. 

I've served this with yellow rice and green beans with some sauce drizzled over the chicken and beans; but, I hope you'll try it and share your side dishes with us.


  1. mmm.. looks like a little bit o' orange zest in there too? delish.
