Baked chicken in the sleeve is an ideal dish for housewives who value their time. In my opinion, a baking sleeve was invented by a man who hated to wash trays after cooking meat and really did not like fatty foods. Agree, it’s nice to cook when there is no grease splashing around, dishes and stove in perfect condition, and at the same time, less than an hour later, on the table, fried chicken.
Unlike parchment and foil, the sleeve allows you to observe what is happening in the oven. You can always add or reduce gas, and the cook’s trained eye will immediately notice a golden crust on the chicken, which indicates its readiness.
For baked chicken, I advise you to cook satsivi nut sauce. Put the prepared portions of meat in satsivi and put them in the refrigerator for several hours. This dish is served cold to the table.

A method of preparing chicken baked in a sleeve
Cut the chicken into portions. Chicken leg cut along the joint to separate the thigh and lower leg. It is better to bake in the sleeve a portion of approximately the same size so that the meat is cooked evenly. If you put together the uncut wings and thighs, then the wings will overcook, and near the bone on the hips may be leftover meat.
Wash sliced portions, dry with a paper towel.
Grind 2 medium onions and peeled garlic in a food processor. We rub the meat with the onion-garlic mixture, you can try to stuff a little onion under the skin.
Add spices - Imereti saffron, thyme, oregano, rosemary and fenugreek seeds. Pour about 2.5 tablespoons of shallow salt. Well rub the pieces with spices and salt, put in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
So that the chicken does not burn, and retains juiciness, you need to put it on a vegetable pillow.
For a vegetable pillow, cut the remaining onions in large rings. Cut the carrots in thick circles.

Pour olive oil into a bowl with pickled chicken, mix by hand, so that the oil well covers the pieces on all sides. We measure out about 60 centimeters of the sleeve, first we put a layer of onions with carrots. Gently lay the pickled chicken on the vegetables.
For ties, cut off strips 1 cm wide from the film. Tie tightly on both sides.
Do not place the ties close to the content, leave some free space.
Put the sleeve with the chicken and vegetables on a baking sheet. We heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius. We put the baking sheet on the middle shelf of the oven. Cook for 35-40 minutes, then remove from the oven, leave in the sleeve for 15 minutes.
To the table, baked chicken in the sleeve, serve hot, pour freshly squeezed lemon juice. Enjoy your meal!
