Clay Baker Country Chicken

This is the easiest and juiciest chicken I have ever made, it comes out great every time using my Romertopf clay baker. They are easily found and affordable in most kitchen gadget stores. It is not only for chicken though you can make fish, meatloaf, roast beef, baked apples and even a great bread loaf. Best of all the chicken is very healthy which is my main goal nowadays.

3 lb whole chicken
1 yellow onion
1/2 a lime
2 TBSP butter
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 cup white wine
2 cups of your favorite vegetables (potatoes, onions, carrots, tomato)
salt & pepper to taste

1. Completely submerge your clay baker for 15 minutes in water
2. Wash the chicken and rub the inside with salt and pepper.
3. Place the onion, lime and parsley in the cavity of the chicken; tie the legs together
4. Place in bottom of pot and brush with butter, season with thyme, rosemary, salt & pepper
5. Add wine and vegetables all around
6. Cover pot and place in a cold oven. Bake at 450º for about 85 minutes
7. For crispier skin remove the top and broil for 3-5 minutes

Servings 4
