Multi-Tasking Your Oven



If I'm cooking something in my oven, I'll throw in a few split breasts with the skin removed while I'm baking my casserole or whatever. Then, when the chicken cools, I shred it for later uses. That way, I'm not using my oven just to bake the chicken and I always have cooked chicken on hand.

  • I do the same thing with baked potatoes. Just wash a few baked potatoes, cover them in foil and put them on the bottom rack. When I pull out the meal I'm cooking I leave the potatoes in there and turn off the oven for another 1/2 hour. Then when we are done eating I pull out the potatoes and refrigerate. My teenager warms them up during the week and adds toppings to it. I'd rather him eat a baked potato than a bag of potato chips.
