READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Tonkcats

Wonderful with rice. This is a Clay Cookery recipe, but I think with an adjustment to oven temperature, you could use conventional cooking.

Easy and Yummy. I doubled the flour and spices. After coating the chicken I browned in oil on top of the stove. I added the left over flour and spices to the broth. I also added a can of Rotel tomatos with chili's.I cooked in a ceramic casserole dish with a lid at 450 for same amount of time. Chicken was so tender it fell off the bone.
