Ellen, Can I warm a precooked chicken in this roaster like I would in a oven? The pkg. of the chicken said to put the oven at 350 for 5 min. per lb.. Thanks

I need to do all my cooking on saturday I usually make my cornbeef , cabbage and potatoes, and carrots, in my pressure cooker a few times. And it gives me time to make Irish soda bread. any suggestions for heating up my sunday meal Thanks MaryAnn

I would do the corn beef , chill and slice. Save the broth. Day of, bring broth to a boil, pop in the potatoes and carrots, cook 40 minutes. Add cabbage. Layer on the meat slices which will sort of steam on top. Everything hot and nothing MUSHY- much better than cooking all ahead and reheating all.

Can I freeze prepared chili macaroni casserole in the electric roaster oven pan and then thaw and re-heat it a couple months later?

Yes, BUT you need to thaw in the refrigerator anyway before cooking, and several gallon zipper freezer baggies will freeze and thaw faster and be MUCH easier to store.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post.

I need to make sausage gravy for about 160 men. My problem is limited cookware and need to get the job done without taking a long time. Question is: Can I make enough gravy for these men in my Rival roaster oven 22qt and if so...will the 22qt be enough for 160 men or will I have to make 2 batches.

Thank you very much for your help and the site.

No, you need at least 3 roasters, as they should only hold 12 quarts each, which is 50- 60 servings.

You can fry out the sausage the day before and keep in the fridge overnight.
