    Alan in SW Florida's Note:

    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.

      This is my first Clay Baker recipe and it is awesome! It was a big hit with the whole family. It was moist and crispy. I threw 4 pealed garlic cloves in the pot. The roasted cloves were wonderful mushed in the rice I served with it.

      I love chicken cooked in a clay pot, and this one is tasty and easy! I added some lemon slices to the bottom of the pot before placing the chicken in the pot. Just gave it a little extra lemon flavor. I think I will add some sliced onion next time. Thanks for posting!
