We love chicken, give me a wing a tigh a breast and I could cook them in 300 different ways... And you love chicken, too: I can guess it from the fact that "Chicken" it's one of the most visited sections of (link).

The following is a new recipe that we've tried and found simply delicious. Of course! It was created exclusively for by Emile Henry!


Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables
serves: 4; total time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes
Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables
Take this hearty dish from oven to table by cooking in a sturdy, Emile Henry baking dish.The high-quality clay allows heat to penetrate your food thoroughly. Chicken will turn a crispy brown and vegetables will caramelize, absorbing juices and flavor. Carve and serve right from the dish - the high-fired glaze won't scratch or chip. And it retains heat as you enjoy your meal.

5- to 6-pound chicken, wing tips removed
1 pound Idaho or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, cut into 3-inch wedges
1/2 pound beets, peeled and cut into 3-inch wedges
4-5 parsnips, peeled and cut into 4-inch chunks
2 medium onions, peeled and quartered
6 garlic cloves, peeled, left whole
Salt ans fresh ground pepper to taste
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Remove fat from the tail, remove neck, giblets and livers from cavity. Reserve for giblet gravy or other use.

Season cavity and skin with salt, pepper and half of the chopped rosemary. Place chicken in a roasting dish or a oval baking dish, breat side up. Place in oven and roast 10 minutes. After the first 10 minutes, loosen the chicken with a spatula to keep skin from sticking. Add vegetables and coat with any fat that has come from the chicken in the dish. Sprinkle remaining rosemary and salt and pepper over the vegetables. Continue to roast, moving the vegetables around every 15 minutes, for about 50-60 minutes or vegetables are cooked through and the juices from the chicken run clear. If the dish gets dry while cooking add a little chicken stock, white wine or water.

Remove chicken and root vegetables to a platter, adjust seasonings and serve.

The glazes in the Provencale collection are transparent, creating bright, vibrant colors for your kitchen. Good cooking has always been done in earthenware dishes, which spread the heat evenly over the entire surface of the dish. Use the 5.4-qt. rectangular dish for your meats, pasta or vegetables. These temperature-resistant dishes can go directly from freezer to oven. Earthenware dishes keep food warm longer, perfect for those who want seconds!

About Emile Henry…
In the Burgundy region of France is the legendary maker of fine French cookware named Emile Henry. There, potters still hand craft each piece from the local Burgundy Clay - one of the purest of clays, and finish each one with a process known as CERADON, which makes them extremely solid and durable. Containing no lead, the clay is one of the best materials for baking and serving.
