    mersaydees's Note:

    From Dana Jacobi’s book, The Best of Clay Pot Cooking. She says, “Cooking in a clay pot gives you a particularly succulent version of this popular dish. Serve it hot, right from the pot, accompanied by steamed broccoli and rice. Or let the chicken cool, shred the meat, and serve it as a salad tossed in its velvety, nutty sauce.” My husband and I really enjoy this recipe. Prep time doesn’t include clay pot soaking time, typically 15 minutes in lukewarm water; new pots require about 30 minutes; drain thoroughly. Soaking time is not an issue for me as I do my prep work while the pot is soaking.

      This is a nice simple dish to put together with good flavours. The sauce had more of a peanutty sate taste rather than sesame, also to mix the sauce I used a stick blender and I also used a crunchy peanut butter as thas is what I had on hand. My 4 1/2 chicken breasts weighed approximately 250 grams each and we did find that 45 minutes made them a little on the dry side, the sauce on the rice which I served on the side and over the chicken was loved by all, even the DH who doesn't normally like peanut butter based sauces. Thank you mersaydees, made for Please Review My Recipe.
