Honey Lemon Glazed Clay Pot Chicken

If you have never tried clay pot cooking, you are in for a surprise. A clay pot is a perfect for baking chicken or making a one-dish meal. Simply soak the pot in water and it seals in the moisture as your meal bakes inside. This chicken comes out moist and tender and the honey lemon sauce adds a delicious touch. One of my favorite chicken recipes.
 

Ingredients:

1 whole chicken
6 T lemon juice, freshly squeezed – divided (save the lemon shell)
Kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp butter, melted
 
Lemon Honey Sauce
4 Tbsp butter, room temperature
4 Tbsp flour
2/3 c honey
4 tsp soy sauce
remaining 4 Tbsp lemon juice (from above)


 

Directions:

  1. Soak the clay pot in cold water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Wash chicken inside and out, using cool water; dry with paper towels.
  3. Rub chicken with 2 Tbsp of the fresh lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Put lemon shell inside cavity of chicken and truss.
  5. Place the chicken into the prepared clay pot and brush with 2 Tbsp of melted butter.
  6. Cover clay pot and place in a cold oven. Turn oven on to 400° F and cook for 45 minutes.
  7. While chicken is cooking, make the glaze. Add 4 Tbsp butter and 4 Tbsp flour to a small bowl, mix until it becomes a paste. Combine  honey, soy sauce and 4 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice in a small pan. Heat sauce over medium heat. When sauce is hot, whisk in the butter/flour paste mixture. Cook over medium heat until the sauce is slightly thickened.
  8. After the 45 minutes, remove clay pot from oven. Pour thickened sauce mixture over the chicken, covering all exposed areas. Replace the cover and put the clay pot back in the oven. Continue cooking for another 45 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through.
  9. Remove chicken from clay pot and place on a serving platter. The sauce can be placed in a gravy boat and served along with the chicken.
