Recipe by Alan in SW Florida
Don't see too many clay oven or clay pot recipes. This is a favorite of mine. It makes a chicken with a golden brown, very crisp skin.
Directions See How It's Made
- Soak clay oven in water to cover for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Place lemon in chicken cavity. Tuck wings under, and tie legs together with string, if desired. Place chicken in clay pot, breast side up, and sprinkle with tarragon. Cover with lid.
- Place in a COLD oven. Turn oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake 1 hour. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes or until meat thermometer inserted into chicken thigh registers 180 degrees.
