The small PoultryMate is 11" in length and is ideal for cooking a chicken, up to 7 lbs., or other smaller poultry. You can cook a 3.5 lb. chicken in 45 minutes or a 5 lb. chicken in under one hour - see cooking instructions section for specific cooking times for chickens. The quicker cooking time affords you the ability to cook a whole chicken on a week night, as you can have an entire meal prepared in approximately one hour. With the use of the PoultryMate, you can achieve a crisp, golden brown outer skin while still keeping the meat moist and tender. Using the PoultryMate is the fastest way to cook a chicken.
