Savory Chicken Half Breast

The other day, I bought a salmon filet with plans on making a sherry salmon recipe in my Clay Pot.  I was so excited to taste this “steamed” fish.  But unfortunately, it bombed.  It was very mushy.  Between the natural steam that occurs in cooking with a clay pot and the 1/2 cup of sherry I added, produced this mushy dish. It was edible and had great flavor, but too mushy for my taste and not blog worthy.

So, of course, I had to redeem myself and thawed out two chicken half breasts and made this incredible dish.  That herb on top of the chicken is Savory, not Rosemary.  Savory is piquant, citrusy, peppery, slightly warm in flavor that adds a delicate lemony bites to dishes.

  1. This looks amazing. I don’t have a clay pot but I do have a dutch oven. Do you think this recipe would work in that? Please bring this by my foodie friday party today.

  2. I have a clay pot, but use it mostly for making awesome baked beans. I’ve never tried a meat dish in it. I am going to pin this so I can give a try. Awesome share for Foodie Friends Friday.

  3. I don’t have a clay pot, but the flavors you used sound delicious! Sorry the salmon didn’t work out, but the chicken looks amazing! Thanks for sharing at Foodie Friends Friday!

    • If you have a dutch oven I am sure you can make it in that. I don’t have a dutch oven. I do know that the steam from the clay pot is what makes the chicken get nice and brown.
