Roast chicken is a family tradition at our house. You can expect to see it on the table for dinner on any given Sunday. This Roasted Chicken in a Clay Pot with Roast Vegetables is a rustic dish that is simple, yet can be served when company is coming.
Cooking a whole chicken in a clay pot is my favorite method because it’s easy, results in juicy chicken, and clean up is a breeze. I have had this Romertopf Classic Baker (affiliate link) for years and use it often. It’s a German clay pot that is worth it’s weight in gold (or chicken).
A clay pot like this is a wonderful way to ensure that your chicken stays juicy and guarantees that you won’t be making a mess in the oven. You soak the baker in water for at least 15 minutes and this ensures a moist chicken that needs no additional oil or broth. The chicken and vegetables cook in their own juices and is to die for! Since everything is cooked in one dish, clean up becomes so much easier too. You can use this baker for more than just chicken too. There are lamb shanks, pork roast, bread, roasted vegetables, etc.
This recipe for Roast Chicken in a Clay Pot is very simple. It combines root vegetables, fresh herbs, garlic, salt, pepper, and chicken. It’s a perfect example of how clean eating can be easy and delicious. You can change-up the herbs is you like. I used fresh herbs in my recipe. If you want to use dried herbs, decrease the amount to 1-2 teaspoons each (depending on taste).
I hope you enjoy this family favorite. Serve it with a fresh green salad and fresh baguette. You’ll have a meal that you’ll find yourself making more and more.
