Nor do I. Which is why I cook it. In my oven. The fact that the chicken is inside the oven while it's heating up before cooking for the full duration doesn't somehow turn it raw.

I suppose I should have said "or overcooked chicken"

I like being able to time consistently how long it will take for a thing to cook. Having to actively monitor an oven for doneness, imo, defeats the purpose of an oven. May as well pan-cook my chicken at that point.

Honestly, who has time to eat these days. It's 2016. Drinks are enough. If you're desperate, chew on some of your inner mouth flesh for sustenance. Fingernails on christmas.

Do you preheat the oven before sticking your head in or do you just pop your face in there and let it go? Asking for a friend.

I would avoid switching it on in any capacity if you're trying to clean it.

I just brought up this thread in conversation the other day, so this seems like a fun one to dig up for this special occasion. I can't decide if my favourite part is Hito not be able to deal or madhair's relentless shitposting.

Anyway, I still don't preheat my oven! Don't @ me!

I just do whatever the instructions tell me. I am really slow about the whole process of getting my materials together so it’s no trouble.
