If you like the stove, I don't see why you shouldn't get the oven. The Origo products are pretty well regarded.
As for fitting a large chicken... depends on your definition of large.
Here's a review of it from another forum
We purchased and installed an origo 6000 alcohol marine stove. This is a passive alcohol stove.
The installation instructions although somewhat on the sparse side were easy to follow and clearly written. The same applied to operating instructions.
The pods are easy to fill, close easily and come with gaskets for further closing if one is going to be away for some time.
Many marine stoves have material in the oven that is far too light, necessitating the addition of ceramic tiles or pizza stones. This is NOT the case with the Origo oven, the bottom is heavy enough so that the food heats evenly and in reasonable time. The truth is we have found very little difference in times between this oven and ones we had in houses.
The gimbals work well, as does the locking mechanism. In short we would recommend this item to anyone considering a new galley stove, in particular to those who do not want propane ( this was the case with us).
We have not had cause to contact Origo regarding any difficulties , therefore cannot speak to the customer service aspect of this company.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
