Gwyneth Paltrow’s Ten Hour Chicken

So now we move from ten toed chickens to ten hour chicken…

I used one of my home raised meat chickens to make a new recipe out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook, “My Father’s Daughter.”  Ok, ok, I know a lot of you are like, what does Gwyneth know about cooking?  But apparently she knows her way around the kitchen, and I really like this cookbook, particularly as a mother of young kids.  It is full of recipes that are great for young families.

Ten hour chicken could not be easier or more delicious.  You put a chicken, breast side down, in a dutch oven with a tight fitting lid.  Squeeze a lemon onto the chicken, sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, and throw a few whole, peeled cloves of garlic around the pot.  Put the lid on and put the whole thing in a 200 degree oven for 10 hours.  No that is not a typo.

Ten hours later you take off the lid to find 4 inches of yummy juices, which I made into delicious gravy, and a chicken that is falling off the bone tender.  You can buy Gwyneth’s cookbook on and it was at Costco last time I was there.

Sorry no pictures for the chicken or baked potato night.  I have not perfected my food photography technique yet.
