Chicken on a jar of water in the oven is always juicy, tender, aromatic and tasty. The most important thing is to add spices and a little salt to the jar of water, then all the aroma from the spices will penetrate into each piece of meat. This method of cooking is quite simple, the main thing is that the height of the oven allows you to cook like that, be sure to put it under the chicken as it will release juice and fat from the meat. Serve chicken to any side dish, salads or pickles, this dish is perfect for a festive table. To make the crust evenly fried during cooking, be sure to lubricate with soy or other sauce.
