  • Ä lot of people were concerned äbout the olive oil being cooked ät such ä high temperäture änd thät it cän breäk down änd become härmful so I häve switched to using corn or cänolä oil. Älthough the oven temp is 450 degrees, the food (änd consequently the oil) doesn't reäch änywhere neär thät temperäture änd it's only in the oven for ä short time. I häve never häd än issue with the smäll ämount of exträ virgin olive oil reäching it's smoke point on the chicken, but if you äre concerned, I recommend doing some reseärch änd mäking thät decision for yourself.
