The Crazy Cookers

School: Freedom 7

Gavin L (6th grade), Asher H (6th grade), and Aaron W (6th grade)

Last year when we were in 5th grade all of us participated in the mission to mars event (not part of Energy Whiz).

For our project, we are doing a solar energy cooker. We are making naan and chicken skewers.

The highest temperature we have achieved so far is 227.9 degrees Fahrenheit

Naan Recipe – Feeds Four


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp oil (I used olive, you could use anything relatively mild)
  • ½ cup milk
  • butter


  1. Combine all dry ingredients, and whisk together.
  2. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and add the oil and milk. Mix everything together until it forms a ball. Turn out on the counter and knead until very smooth and elastic — at least 5 minutes — adding more flour as necessary.
  3. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 8-10 equal pieces.
  4. Heat a skillet over 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll one piece of dough until very thin (less than ⅛”). If the skillet isn’t non-stick, melt some butter before each piece. One at a time, cook the naan for about 90 seconds, or until parts are blackening, on each side.

Chicken Skewers

The chicken skewers are pre-bought from Costco and will be reheated using the cooker on the day of the competition.
