Notes about this recipe

    This was a fun recipe. A once a year recipe and definitely during the cooler months. The preserved lemon makes it. I searched high and low for the preserved lemons and finally found them at Sur La Table. I also used pizza dough from the refrigerated section in the grocery next to the cookies in a tube. I have a large Le Creuset Dutch oven, not sure on the size, but the heavy one and the amount of veggies worked for me. There of course were lots of leftovers, but great. I did peel the garlic but won't next time. I see where it will help differentiate them from the sweet potatoes visually. I had a hard time browning the chicken, I didn’t use two pots and just used the dutch oven to brown the veggies and chicken, didn’t work for whatever reason. Chicken came out fully cooked at 55 minutes. It was fun munching on the pizza dough crust too. 4 1/2 stars from us.

    This was okay to me, but my husband loved it. I agree that there are too much vegetables. I had an eight pound bird, so it did not fit into my largest Dutch oven with all that vegetables. Had to cut the chicken down and saved the back and wings for stock. Cutting the chicken into pieces was an option in the recipe, but the presentation was not as pretty. My thyme was not vigorous enough to be harvested, so had to use dried thyme, and mistakenly put in sage, and then added thyme. Used pearled onions and peeled the garlic cloves. My bread seal did not look as good as her picture, the exposed part was quite burnt.

    This dish was pretty, but there are several changes I would make. I would make the dough an edible one instead of just flour and water. Use salt and perhaps yeast. There are way too many vegetables in this. I cut the number of vegetables in half and that was still a lot. The sauce was good. I'm not sure I would make this again though.

    This was alright. The celery gave the sauce a bitter flavor. There were a lot of vegetables. Instead of making this in multiple pots, I cooked everything in a single dutch oven.

    Very good. I saw someone's suggestion to use cheap pizza dough to seal the Dutch Oven and that was a timesaver for me.

    This was a great roasted chicken. Even the dough seal really isn't that difficult - and the drama of breaking the seal and discovering the juicy chicken is unbeatable.

    Substitution for preserved lemons: I'd recommend lightly sauteeing for a minute or two a couple of seeded lemon slices in just a touch of light oil with some salt, then putting it in the oven (in the skillet) for ten to twelve minutes in a moderate oven, adding a pinch of salt and a tablespoon or two of water, to prevent the juices from getting too sticky. Then I'd chop it and use it with the pan juices. Preserved lemon has a somewhat more mellow, less acidic quality than fresh lemon, which is why I would not substitute fresh.

    The carrots, sweet potatoes, and garlic cloves were perfectly tender and tasty, and the chicken was moist and flavorful. This is a very simple dish (at least it is without the dough seal), and worked well for a casual dinner. I served the salmon rillette as an appetizer, the spiced squash, fennel, and pear soup as a first course, and Marie-Helene's apple cake for dessert. It was a tasty dinner with a simple country French feel. The preparation of all the dishes allowed plenty of time for visiting and filling wine glasses.

    p. 206 - This recipe makes an outstandingly moist, perfectly cooked, juicy chicken infused w lemon-herby goodness! The sweet potatoes are such a perfect match for the chicken, I’m so glad I didn’t use white potatoes instead. One of the best chicken dishes we’ve had, ever! I made the recipe just as it was set out in the book with the following exceptions: -I removed the skin from the garlic cloves after reading a few comments online about folks not liking to have to mess w the skins. I’d highly recommend this. The garlic retained its shape and was ready and waiting to be smeared on your dunked bread! -I did not let my raw chicken come to room temperature before browning. Call me crazy but all I’ve read about food safety made this step scream DANGER to me so out of the fridge and into the pan it went! I’d be interested to hear how others handled this -I used pearl onions vs small white Photos here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/775862#6477211
