Turbo oven-baked Cajun chicken breasts recipe. Chicken breasts with sweet potatoes and cajun spices baked in a turbo (halogen) oven. Very easy and simple chicken breast recipe.
Many people ask: “What is it turbo (halogen oven)?”
According to https://learn.compactappliance.com/what-is-a-halogen-oven/ : “These ovens use a bright halogen light to produce heat, which is spread throughout the oven via the fan. The temperature inside is controlled by a thermostat, which means the light knows when to turn on and off at will. They not only save space due to being quite a bit smaller than conventional ovens, but they’re also capable of cooking food nearly three times faster.
Turbo (halogen oven) has too many advantages:
- You can cook everything in one pot
- Turbo oven cooks much faster than other ovens
- Food in these ovens is very visible – you can see it throughout the cooking
- This is fat-free cooking, you don’t need to use any oil
- Food cooking in a turbo (halogen) oven turns very juicy and delicious
