Oktoberfest Chicken

Our favourite “comfort food” recipes-from our kitchen to yours!

Comfort food is not only nurturing and wholesome, it's also nutritious, and easily prepared in traditional clay bakers, which slow cook foods to perfection.Clay Baker

  • 1 frying chicken
  • 5 tbsp. onion, sliced
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • Pepper, salt & paprika, to taste

Salt the chicken, inside and out, and fill cavity with sliced onions, parsley and butter. Sprinkle paprika and pepper on skin of chicken. Place chicken in clay baker, and put the clay baker into a cold oven. Turn oven to 425 F for 90 minutes.

When finished, the skin on the chicken will be nicely browned and crisp. (Note: most of the calories and fat are in the skin, so I usually remove before eating). Use the drippings on the bottom of the pan to make a gravy, as desired, by thickening with flour or cornstarch.
