As many of you know, we love to cook. Between my mom, gram and me, there are lots of recipes being made and dinners to cook. One of our favorite dishes happens to be chicken cooked in a dutch oven. What is a dutch oven? A dutch oven is a thick walled pot with a tight fitting lid. I recently was contacted by Kitchen Fair to see if we would like to test out their Classic Dutch Oven. First let me start by saying, this pot is amazing!
You honestly can use any vegetables you like. I happened to have stew mix already in my refrigerator with chopped vegetables and onions so I just used that.
- 1 5lb whole chicken
- 1 small bag carrots
- 8 small/petite red skinned potatoes
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 tbsp chopped garlic
- 2 cups chopped turnip
- 1 cup chopped squash
- 1 cup white cooking white
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup cold water
- ½ stick butter
- ⅛ cup lemon juice
- wash chicken with cold water and pat dry
- add all vegetables and butter to the pot and cover with wine and water
- season chicken with salt, pepper, lemon, oil and parsley
- Bake 400 degrees for 1 hour or until chicken is done
Simply fill your pot with all the ingredients and bake.
I chose the 8 quart copper dutch oven from their Classic Line which is made in America. The pot is made of thick cast aluminum which provides quick heating and is dishwasher safe. One of my favorite features is that it’s non-stick inside and out so not only does your food not stick to the sides, but if it spills over, it doesn’t stick to the outside. The patented, Non-Toxic PFOA Free, Eterna® Black Galaxy non-stick coating makes for easy cleanup. Another feature that I love is that this pot acts as a steamer. Because the lid is so tight, the chicken essentially steamed inside the pot and was so moist once cooked.
I am so excited to try this dutch oven at our camp too this summer. This dutch oven can be used on the stovetop and the coolest part, you can even make a cake in it. I can’t wait to try that out too.
