This recipe utilizes a clay cooker, such as a Romertopf. (for alternative cooking method without a clay pot, see diner524's review) The chicken stays juicy but still gets a crispy skin on top. Remember the clay pot and lid need to be soaked in cold water for 15 minutes before using. Try to find an Herbes de Provence that includes lavender flowers. This is good with steamed rice, or roasted vegies. The juices from the clay pot are good over the rice or vegies.
