  • Summary

    Slow cooked chicken with ultra tender flesh and outrageous crispy skin smothered in a gravy-like sauce that's lip smackingly delicious. Carrots, celery, onion and potato make this a filling meal so you won't need a side - except perhaps some crusty bread to dunk in the sauce! Make this in a large oven proof pot, or see notes if you don't have one. Recipe video below.
