  • Clay Pot or Romertopf


  • 1 small 3 lb rotisserie chicken, or 3 lbs chicken breasts
  • 1/2 stick butter sliced into pads
  • 2 tablespoons seasoning of choice we use Montreal Steak Spice
  • 1 lb mini potatoes for keto option, skip the potatoes
  • 1 lb carrots sliced
  • 1 lb mushrooms sliced or quartered
  • 1/2 pound green beans trimmed
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 10 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 apple optional


  • Fill sink with lukewarm water, and submerge empty clay pot.  Let the pot soak for about 15 minutes while you prep the vegetables.
  • Halve the mini potatoes, slice the carrots, smash the garlic, quarter the mushrooms.  Set aside.
  • Remove clay pot from soaking water.  Add the chicken to the pot.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cover the chicken and vegetables with the lid. Place the pot in a cool oven (not preheated) and then bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for cook for 90 hour.
  • 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!
