    My first recipe post:) This is an Emeril find - it is to die for! I have made the sauce alone for use with grilled chicken as well...not quite as good but still yummy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare a clay roaster by soaking in cold water for 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Wash the chicken well inside and out under cool running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Rub chicken all over with 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice and season evenly on all sides with the salt and pepper. Place the reserved lemon shell inside the chicken cavity. Place the chicken inside the prepared clay roaster and brush with the melted butter. Cover the roaster and transfer to a cold oven. Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and cook for 45 minutes.
    3. 3
      Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of lemon juice, honey, and soy sauce in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until heated through. In a small bowl, make a paste from the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and the flour. Whisk the butter-flour mixture into the melted honey-lemon-butter mixture. Continue to cook until the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove the clay cooker from the oven and pour the honey-butter mixture all over the chicken, making sure to evenly cover the breast and any exposed areas. Cover the roaster and return the chicken to the oven for 45 minutes, or until it is cooked through and very tender. Transfer the chicken to a platter or carving board, cut into pieces and serve immediately. Transfer the sauce to a gravy boat for serving, or spoon some of the sauce over each piece of chicken.

      I serve this with roasted potatoes or rice.

      I made this gluten and dairy free and it was DELICIOUS!! I used olive oil instead of butter in the first part of the recipe and I used coconut oil and a gluten free flour in the sauce. The chicken was moist and full of flavor and smelled WONDERFUL!!

      This is SUPERB! Great flavors and such nice juices for sauce. I love chicken in a clay-cooker but I tend to forget I own one because it gets put away in the back of a cupboard. But I will be making this dish again, so I will put the cooker on a higher shelf, more visible, so I remember :) Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
