I normally cook chicken on a pan with some olive oil (which supports a maximum temperature of 160C) but I am trying to bake on the oven instead.
I've found a recipe where some olive oil placed at the bottom of tray together with some balsamic vinegar and some spices but the recipe indicates to set the oven temperature to 200C.
Knowing that the maximum temperature for the olive oil is the 160C I set the oven temperature to that and increase the cooking time for the chicken (instead of 20 minutes I used 1 hour). On the last 5 minutes or so, I increased to 190C.
The chicken looks cooked inside but I am concerned now if whether or not it had reached a safe temperature after reading Can I safely roast a chicken for 4 to 5 hours on a low heat? .
- If I set the oven temperature to 200C, will it cause degradation on the portion of olive oil, considering its maximum recommended temperature of 160C? Likely the oil will not reach the 200C but what temperature should I use?
- How safe should it be to eat this chicken now? Should I apply some extra cooking to be sure?
thanks in advance
