Clay Pot Chicken with Vegetables
Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Rub inside and outside with salt, pepper, thyme and lemon peel . Stuff with parsley and 2 cloves of garlic each. Scrub the vegetables, peel and either halve or leave whole. Fill a clay casserole dish with the chicken and the vegetables. Sprinkle with 4 tablespoons of oil and the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the dish and cook at 200°C about 1 hr. 15 min.
If you prefer chicken with crispy skin, then uncover the chicken for the last 15 min. of cooking.
