Here’s how to make a quick, easy and delicious

Dutch oven chicken

It’s so simple, I think this may become one of your

favorite recipes…


In a Dutch oven:

Heat 3 Tablespoons

extra virgin olive oil

Brown a whole, organic, free range chicken

breast down for about 4 minutes.

Using a wooden spoon,

gently move the bird a couple times to prevent sticking.

Flip and brown an additional 6-8 minutes.

Turn off heat under chicken.

Pour a cup of white wine or beer over top.

Sprinkle generously with:

garlic powder

onion powder

Italian seasoning


a pinch of nutmeg

seasoned salt


freshly ground black pepper

and a dash of cayenne


top with fresh carrot and celery slices

cut on an extreme diagonal

(Just like my friend Suki taught me)

8 chopped green onions

4 Tablespoons pesto

and a couple fried pieces of bacon, crumbled.

Cover and cook in a 350 degree oven for

60-80 minutes

or until meat thermometer reaches

180 degrees when tested in various fleshy spots.
