Whole chicken in Schlemmertopf

Today we made a whole chicken in the Schlemmertopf. It turned out really well! The Schlemmertopf keeps both the moisture and the flavours in the meat really well, so it was not too much of a surprise that the chicken was perfectly moist and tender.

After placing the chicken in the Schlemmertopf we sliced some onion and garlic and put around the chicken together with a small jar of bone broth as well as a few bay leaves. Make sure to soak the Schlemmertopf before putting all the ingredients in and before placing it in the oven. When the clay is dry the heat from the oven might make it break…! So, that’s a worthwhile precaution.

Then the whole thing was placed in the oven at around 175 °C for about two hours.

Together with the chicken we steamed some white cabbage as well as roasted some broccoli and sweet potatoes in the oven together with the chicken during the last hour before serving.

Sorry for the boring picture of the final plating. It was one of those days where we lost patience (read were really hungry) in combination with a not very photogenic mix of food. But, hey it tasted marvelous!

Happy paleo,

Cecilia & Magnus
