Featured on the Cooking Chanel's, Man, Fire, Food,, Chicken Brick's an earthenware baker that makes the perfect baked chicken.

This is a simple recipe that can be easily modified to suit your taste.

1 4-5 lb Chicken
2 Onions, quartered
3 Garlic cloves
2 Lemons, halved
3 Carrots, cut into strips
2 Celery stalks, cut into strips
3 Tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup of wine
1/2 cup of chicken stalk
Fresh Tarragon
Dried Tarragon
Salt and pepper

1. Soak the brick in water for one hour. Earthenware is porous and absorbs water much like a sponge. The wet brick will help to keep the meat from drying during baking.
2. Prepare chicken cavity by thoroughly washing and drying it. Season cavity with salt and pepper then stuff with one of the quartered onions and garlic cloves
3. Make a nest at the bottom of the brick with fresh tarragon and julienned veggies then set chicken on the nest, breast side up.
4. Squeeze lemon juice on the bird. Wedge lemon halves and remaining onion quarters around the chicken to help support it in the middle of the brick.
5. Place dollops of butter on the breast and season with salt, pepper and dried tarragon.
6. Add wine and broth.
7. Place in cool oven and bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 2 hours-meat thermometer at 160 degrees f.
8. Remove bird, discard onions and allow to rest before serving.

To clean, wash with light soap and water and thoroughly rinse. Place back into warm oven to dry thoroughly.

You will find after time the brick will develop a natural patina with use-similar to how a cast iron skillet seasons with time.

This is a high quality product! It’s not just for chicken! We have made beef stew, pork loin & bread in it as well. We love it!

This is a beautiful baking dish! I used the recipe I saw Mark (the maker of clay items) use and our chicken was moist and delicious. It was a pleasure talking with Mark as I needed help in placing the order.
