This chicken comes out very tender. Not sure where the recipe came from. I think it was probably an email.

I love my clay cooker and I am always on the lookout for ways to use it. This is one of the best I have found. Delicious, moist chicken and wonderful rich sauce. i think the marinade/sauce would be good with pork also. Thank you for a great dinner!

Nice recipe and easy to prepare. Great flavor! Rice and steamed veggies were a good side that I added. I would recommend this as an alternate to the usual chicken dinners. I plan on trying this recipe with chicken bites for a pot luck.
