This is adapted from a recipe that came with my Schlemmertopf clay pot.

Top Review by Know what I like

We made this recipe as is except that our 3qt pot would not hold the potatoes so we baked those separately. The flavor was fantastic though I would have added more paprika. For some reason it didn't have the 'punch' we had anticipated. This was the maiden voyage for our pot and it was a great choice. We own a Romertopf and not the Shlemmertopf (glazed) Thanks for the simple but tasty recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak your clay cooker per its manufacturer's instructions; in my case, I soak the lid of my Glazed Schlemmertopf for 10 minutes before use.
  2. Place bacon, onions and green pepper into the clay pot.
  3. Salt and pepper the chicken pieces, sprinkle with paprika, then add to the pot along with the potatoes.
  4. Cover and bake at 425° for 1 hour 20 minutes (my clay pot requires going into a non-preheated cold oven before setting the oven temperature).
  5. Remove clay pot from oven; if adding sour cream, whisk it in at this time (I usually remove everything first then add it back in). Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve with crusty French bread.
