Do you have a dutch oven? This clean eating dutch oven chicken recipe might be a good recipe to use it with!
A while back, I purchased a dutch oven specifically to make Clean Eating Dutch Oven Bread. Since then, that little dutch oven has just been sitting there on my shelf feeling rather lonely. Having never cooked in one prior to making that bread recipe, I wasn’t sure what to do with it, as the cooking environment in a dutch oven is a bit different than a regular oven. So I thought it was high time that I experiment a bit.
I love that this chicken turned out so moist. When I bake chicken in the oven, it’s easy to overdo it and dry it out. But it seems that in a dutch oven, the moisture really tends to stay put. I enjoyed this with veggies for dinner, although I have to say that a little salt really helps bring out the flavors. Mini Chef even enjoyed a few bites, but I wouldn’t say that this dish is a great kids meal. Definitely more of an adult flavor. This is also fantastic to chop up and take with you on the go with some easy veggies like carrot sticks. Hope you enjoy it!
