Roasted Chicken with the Romertopf Poultry Roaster

Hi there, happy December!

I hope your Thanksgiving was fantastic with your loved ones. Now that we're in the holiday season, I'm thrilled about the upcoming celebrations and, of course, the delicious food!

During my search for the best way to roast chicken, I stumbled upon the Romertopf Poultry Roaster at Kookio’s sale. Excited about the possibility of making a juicy and flavorful chicken, I seized the opportunity and added this versatile roaster to my kitchen tools. And guess what? I got it at a discounted price, making the whole experience even more exciting!

In our house, roasting has always been a favorite cooking method. The slow and even cooking process allows flavors to mix and intensify, creating a meal that's both comforting, nutritious and delicious. What's even better is that the Romertopf Poultry Roaster caught my eye for its clever use of clay, keeping the chicken moist without needing lots of fats or oils.

Let's talk about this roasting pot made from natural clay – the Romertopf Roaster. The clay ensures the chicken cooks evenly, keeping all those tasty flavors inside. Using this roaster is easy and easy to clean up. Now, let's dive into the details and see step by step how I got the most flavorful chicken.

1. Prepare the Romertopf: 

Soak the Romertopf Poultry Roaster in water for at least 15-30 minutes before using it. This helps to prevent the clay from absorbing too much moisture during cooking.

2. Prepare the Chicken: 
  • Pat the whole chicken dry with paper towels.
  • Season the chicken inside and out with salt, pepper, and your choice of herbs and spices. You can also place some herbs and garlic inside the chicken cavity for added flavor.
    3. Prepare the Vegetables: 
    Cut in smaller pieces the vegetables of your choice. Add a little oil, salt, pepper and herbs of your choice for flavor. 
      4. Preheat the Grill/Oven: 
      Preheat your grill/oven to 375°F.
      5. Place the Chicken and Vegetables in Romertopf: 
      • Remove the Romertopf from the water and place the chicken inside.
      • Brush the chicken with olive oil or with melted butter, or your favorite oil.
      • Add vegetables around the chicken. This adds flavor and creates a complete meal.

      6. Roast: 
      Place the Romertopf in the preheated grill/oven and roast according to the weight of the chicken. As a general rule, roast for about 20 minutes per pound.
      7. Check for doneness: 
      About 20-30 minutes before the estimated cooking time is complete, check the internal temperature of the chicken using a meat thermometer. The chicken is done when the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
      8. Rest and Serve:
      Once done, let the chicken rest for about 10-15 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the chicken moist.

        The discovery of the Romertopf Poultry Roaster was a game-changer for my kitchen adventures. The idea of creating a juicy, flavorful chicken sparked my excitement.

        May your holiday season be filled with warmth, joy, and, of course, delicious food! Happy roasting, and here's to creating memorable moments around the table with your loved ones!
