Personal Notes:
As I have a large claypot, I frequently cook two chickens at once. This is a favorite dish and is excellent when reheated.
I served this once when my brother was visiting and my best friend Judy was dining with us. As this is one of Judy's favorite dishes, David always jokes he got everything at the meal but the chicken. This is when I went to cooking to chickens at a time. Then I always have leftovers to send home with Judy.
