Pausing time

If you put a chicken in an oven (or a vegetarian alternative) and then pause time, what happens to the temperature of the chicken?

There are several things which you could argue could happen. One is that the chicken will remain at the same temperature as is was when you paused time.

Another is that the chicken will continue to cook, due to the oven being warm.

The one that I believe would happen is this option: the chicken, oven and everything else in the universe would hit absolute zero (-273.15°C) because heat requires particles to move, even in a solid the particles move, its just not as much as a liquid or a gas. As time is completely paused, nothing is moving, so everything must be absolute zero.

Despite this pausing time is theoretically impossible, at least here on earth. Even if you manage to pause time, you would be completely frozen yourself, as all the air particles around you would be frozen, rooting you to the spot.

Does this mean that if you were in a total vacuum (I would say space, as this is regarded as a vacuum, but it is technically not a total vacuum) could you pause time and still move around?

What are your thoughts on this? Can you pause time? Also, what would happen to the chicken?
