Cast Iron Pan

Roasted skin on chicken

Roasted skin on chicken

You can use breast, wings or thigh meat!

Time: approx. 20 -25 minutes (Internal temperature – 75°C)


  1. Pre heat your wood fired oven to around 200°C
  2. Pre heat oil in a cast iron pan in the oven.
  3. Once to temperature and the oil is hot, remove the cast iron pan and place chicken skin side down to render down the fat in the skin.
  4. After 10 minutes, remove and turn the chicken.
  5. Put back into the oven and close the door until fully cooked. If required, top up with small pieces of wood.
  6. Once cooked (internal temperature 75°C) remove pan and rest the chicken before serving.


To ensure the chicken is cooked thoroughly, I recommend using a Internal Temperature Probe! If desired, loosely attach a foil hood to the pan to prevent the chicken from burning.
