    The purpose of the ten minutes cooking is to slightly crisp the chicken u can do it by frying in deep hot oil or grilling on a hot griddle or grill.

    please note that thermostats are the oven's heating resistance wires or pads for infra red.

    hi guys thanks for stopping by. My oven is a turkish electric oven with two thermostats upper and lower. hence i cook on two stages lower 95% of the cooking and the remaining 5% for glaze or roasted face of roast or casseroles. Please note the molasses and mustard glaze color and caramelize the chicken. Every machine has a tweak around. if your broiler is on a stove or you dont have one you can deep fry your chicken first or grill for ten minutes then roast in the oven or grill for 95% of cooking then baste and fry or grill your chicken for same effect or even if u just have a stove the flattened chicken can be put on a roasting rack or wire and turned to roast each side for a while. Hope this helps

    I am thinking perhaps "Heat your oven up and down at max temp" means a stove with the oven and broiler in same cavity and heated to max temp. All stoves are not equal. Some have broilers in a separate compartment in which case this would not work. Recipe looks great and I'm going to follow the oven/broiler temp change instructions. Hope Canullia will set us straight!

    I'm unfamiliar with some terminology you use.
    What does "Heat your oven up and down at max temp" mean? It's the up and down part that throws me.
    In instruction line 6 it appears again.
    And what does lower thermostat and upper thermostat mean?
