How to make the most of your wood burner and save energy

You can make the most of your wood burner and save energy by not just keeping your home cosy and warm but you can also cooking your dinner on it, such as creamy chicken thighs! Chicken thighs require an impressively low amount of heat to cook them to perfection, making them perfect for wood burners.

This is because chicken thighs are tougher, fattier cuts than chicken breasts, so they are able to survive lower temperatures better than chicken breasts but still deliver a delicious flavour. Plus, chicken thighs are often cheaper than chicken breasts, so you know you’re getting food that tastes great for a bargain! Get creative with what you cook on your wood burner and try chicken thighs – it’s sure to be worth it!

So, what pot do you use for cooking dinner on a wood burner? We used an oval cast iron pot that sits perfectly on top of the wood burner and is perfect for casseroles. Choose one that suits your wood burner. Our wood burner is small, so the oval pot works best in the small area on top of the stove.

What to serve with chicken thighs and cauliflower

Our chicken thighs cooked on the wood burner were undeniably delicious! Creamy and sumptuous, they were the perfect hearty dinner. To ask what side is best to serve alongside chicken thighs is like asking which flavour of ice cream you enjoy more – it all comes down to personal preference.

We chose quinoa, but you could also serve your chicken thighs with a simple bed of fluffy white rice, creamy mashed potatoes, golden chips or savoury naan bread. No matter what side dishes you choose to accompany it, one thing is for sure – the chicken will be sensational!
