Cleo's World Renowned Clay Pot Creole Chicken
1 good quality large sized chicken (free range is best)
1 bottle Maison Louisiane Creole Marinade
2 medium sized yellow onions
4 carrots, peeled and chopped into sections
4 medium sized red potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
1 green pepper, seeded, rinsed and cut into strips
Remove giblets from chicken cavity and rinse chicken thoroughly. Pat dry.
Prepare clay pot for cooking as per instructions (usually a 15 minute water soaking).
Work marinade under entire chicken skin; place chicken in clay pot.
Pour remaining Maison Louisiane Creole Marinade over chicken and into the pot.
Arrange vegetables around chicken. I like to put as many carrots as possible into chicken cavity.
Cook at 350 F for approximately 1 hour (or follow recommended chicken cooking times on clay pot instructions)
Remove from clay pot; arrange vegetables and chicken on serving platter and enjoy.
The chicken may fall apart; don't worry; it'll taste great.
Note: Clay pots are widely available and inexpensive. The Swiss version - Romertof - is our favorite!
