This recipe for a Clay Cooker was given to me by my friend Beauchamp more than 20 years ago. It is a great Winter time meal. The ingredients scared me for at least ten years, but when I did make it, it was a hit with the whole family. This is my favorite recipe to make in the clay cooker. I have used 2 tablespoons of red chili chutney for the pepper paste. I am revising the time and the order of ingredients to make the recipe easier to follow. I allow at least 3 hours to make this, as I am slow. I have a Zaar friend Cheri who has asked me about this recipe. I wish her and Scott the best! After numerous meals, we decided to have a dinner party around this recipe...

An amazing dish! The chicken is soft and juicy. My family and I loved it. I used my pure clay pot as dutch oven and the results were fantastic. I use it to make almost any recipe and get the best results. Here is the <a href=>website</a> where I learnt the to cook in these amazing pots.

This is the second time I have had this and it is very very tasty, The chicken is very moist with crispy tasty skin, and the stuffing has great flavor.
