Romertopf Clay Pot Chicken & Roasted Vegetables (Paleo, Whole30)

Easy Romertopf Clay Pot Chicken recipe comes together quickly for an impressive dinner or date night!  Healthy roasted chicken, carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms will impress!  We love cooking in our clay pot… aside from chicken, you can even bake bread in it, check out my easy 4-Ingredient Clay Pot bread recipe.

This Clay Pot Chicken Recipe Is:

  • Simple
  • Hearty
  • Filling
  • Protein Packed
  • Made with whole, clean ingredients
  • Paleo & Whole 30, and a great keto option

I’d call this my husband’s ‘signature dish.’ He used to make it for me when we started dating and I was super impressed at his cooking skills.  After we moved into our house 3 years ago, I think the clay pot got shuffled into a cabinet out of sight, so we didn’t think about using it much.  I recently unearthed it, and of course, had to have him teach me the secret to his amazing chicken.

The hardest part of the recipe is chopping the veggies!  The rest of the recipe comes together super quickly and easily.  And cooking is simple, as it only takes on pot (the Romertopf) so clean up is a breeze.

What’s In This Romertopf Chicken Recipe?

  • Chicken: a whole chicken or chicken breasts, your choice!  We usually do a medium sized rotisserie chicken (3-4 lbs) or just chicken breasts to top.
  • Vegetables of Choice: We love potatoes, green beans, mushrooms, carrots, onion, garlic, and tomatoes.  This recipe is versatile, so you can use any ingredients you have on hand that you want to add.
  • Seasonings: to coat the chicken with.  We normally use a Montreal Steak Spice because we put that spice on everything!

How Do I Make This Romertopf Clay Pot Chicken?

  1. Set oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Fill sink with lukewarm water, and submerge empty clay pot.  Let the pot soak for about 15 minutes while you prep the vegetables.
  2. Halve the mini potatoes, slice the carrots, smash the garlic, quarter the mushrooms.  Set aside.
  3. Remove clay pot from soaking water.  Add the chicken to the pot.
  4. To prep the chicken – carefully slip a few pads of butter underneath the chicken’s skin.  Add the seasoning to the skin, and rub in (we used a poultry rub, but any spice blend you like will do!).  If you want to stuff the chicken, I’d recommend adding apple and onion to the bird.
  5. Once the chicken is in the pot, add the vegetables starting with the most dense.  I put the potatoes and garlic on the bottom, then layer the carrots, green beans, mushrooms.  Top with tomatoes.
  6. Cover the chicken and cook for 90 hour.
  7. Remove the top, and cook for an additional 15 minutes.  Carefully remove pot from oven, check to see meat has been cooked through, and enjoy!

The first step we do is to soak the clay pot.  We submerge it in water for about 15 minutes while the oven heats up.  Once it has been soaked, you layer the vegetables and roots at the bottom, get the chicken ready on the top, and bake away!

I love that this is a super easy one-pot meal!  That means less clean-up that has to be done, and less dishes to get messy.  And if you have leftovers, you can keep them right in the clay pot to heat up the next night.

Also, this dish is SO flavorful!  As the chicken cooks it gives off delicious juices, which the vegetables can roast in.  It’s great for an easy weeknight meal and impressive enough for a date night!

Aside from being paleo, whole30, and low carb, this recipe is also gluten free and refined sugar free!  Can’t go wrong with this one.
