I love chicken, but sometimes I get tired of the same old thing. I need new, exciting flavors to mix it up a bit. And it never hurts to make it easy, right? ThatÔÇÖs why I love this recipe that I can do right in the clay pot with VitaClayÔÇöI just throw all of the ingredients in and out comes a delicious, fully-cooked meal! It tastesÔÇŽ Mediterranean, Italian, exotic, without using any exotic ingredients. It a great new flavor for an old stand-by, so mix it up and find a new, easy dinner favorite!

And clean up is a breeze in VitaClay! It's all cooked in one pot, and the "unstick" surface (without any non-stick chemicals or coatings) keeps things from sticking to the clay. Let us know what you think of this new twist on an old stand-by for dinner!
