I am not one of those home cooks that buys every kitchen gadget on the market. My cupboards are stocked with the basics and a few specialty items that I find useful. When I learned about the PoultryMate it definitely piqued my interest. PoultryMate reduces cooking time while keeping the chicken juicy. I absolutely love roasted whole chicken but rarely make it because of the time it takes. Also, if I’m being totally honest, my oven roasted chickens are always on the dry side.

PoultryMate is a conductive metal bar that is inserted into a whole chicken. It heats up in the oven and cooks the chicken from the inside out. As you can see in the video below, the PoultryMate is easy to use and does in fact make the chicken unbelieveably moist.

With the PoultryMate you get that gorgeous crisp brown skin and super tender meat. Seriously, I went from dry chickens to chickens that are bursting with juices! This is a great product for busy families and is a fantastic gift idea for home cooks. Mother’s Day is right around the corner and Father’s Day is coming up soon too. Oh, it is also Made In America!

Roast your chicken to the safe internal temp of 165°F. I usually go a little over to 170°F and it still turns out moist.
