How to Make Chicken Wings, Tenders or Breasts in a Small Toaster Oven

Save

You don't need a big oven to make good chicken wings, tenders or breasts.You can cook up a great meal using an often-present but often-overlooked appliance: your toaster oven. While most people just use a toaster oven for toasting breads or melting cheeses, it primarily is an oven and can handle typical oven tasks, just on a smaller scale. By reducing your chicken recipes down to size, you can make chicken wings, tenders or breasts in a small toaster oven.

Things You'll Need

  • Whole chicken or cut-up chicken
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Salt
  • Ranch or ketchup
  • Corn oil
  • Locate a small pan that fits into your toaster oven. Take a napkin and blot it with corn oil. Rub the pan with the corn oil.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Place the chicken pieces on the pan, leaving a little bit of space between the pieces.

  • Sprinkle a desired amount of salt and red pepper flakes onto each piece.

  • Put the pan of chicken into the small toaster oven. Let it cook for about 15 minutes. Remove the pan using oven mitts. Carefully flip each piece.

  • Put the pan back in the toaster oven. Cook for another 15 minutes. Test the doneness of the chicken by inserting a meat thermometer into the meatiest part of one of the pieces. Do not let the thermometer rest on a bone, otherwise you will get a false reading. Chicken is safe to eat once it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

  • Remove the pan from the toaster oven. Let the chicken cool slightly before serving with ranch or ketchup for dipping sauce, if desired.
