    Chicken and vegetables using a clay baker


    …And it’s the beginning of my cooking in a clay baker.


    For years I had this clay baker on the counter, but today I decided to use it.


    I read the instructions very carefully and I advise you to do the same, since it becomes very hot and they make recommendations.


    The first thing is to soak the entire clay baker in water for 15 minutes each time you use it. It seems that has to be humid for a better bake.


    The last thing is the recommendation to place it when you take it out the oven on a cloth but not on a cold surface.


    I think that easier and healthier is not possible. Zero fat and vitamins are retained in the vegetables; you do not lose them, either the real flavor of the food.






    2 chicken breasts. (Flavor them with salt, black pepper and garlic power. Let marinate for 10 minutes).


    2 potatoes, 2 carrots, half onion, 1 tomato, half green pepper (optional).
    (Cut in squares the best you can) You can use more vegetables.


    First, put the chicken in the clay baker and then add the vegetables.


    Cover the clay baker and place it in a cold oven. Do not pre-heat the oven!!


    Temperature: 400 F.


    Wait for 1 hour and voila! Your food is ready for today! Enjoy!
