Ceramic Chicken

July 20th

Adam bought a ceramic chicken cooking dish last summer, putting me into a furious state of cooking gadget envy. For those who have ever had “beer butt chicken,” this dish does the same thing — but cleaner. You fill the small container with the desired liquid and spices, place a whole chicken over it and roast for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees. The result is crispy, perfectly roasted chicken, with the fat drained off into the dish vs. the bottom of your oven or grill.

A bit of chopping and grilling of vegetables and voila: fajitas for a family dinner. Yes, oh yes, I will be making this often.

  1. What a nifty gadget! I watched Ina prepare her “Engagement Roast Chicken” yesterday and have been thinking about the frozen CSA chicken in my freezer ever since. Hubby would really enjoy your fajita dinner, and I want to be a guest at your table. It’s quite obvious that love is the main ingredient in all of the meals you prepare.

  2. Nom nom nom.

  3. That is brilliant! I need to get one, we have been buying roasted chicken lately, and I had been thinking about how I just need to roast them myself. And I must ask, what is “beer butt chicken”?

  4. Does the gadget have a name?

  5. Looks like quite the tasty spread you put on, there!

  6. Yum! I shall have to invite myself over the next time that you are making that! 😉

  7. who knew! what a clever kitchen gadget…may have to add it to the list of things that would be fun to acquire.
