Traditionally used in French kitchens for cooking and serving a whole trussed chicken, covered casseroles like this one make a spectacular cook-and-serve dish for any baked-chicken recipe. The underside is left unglazed for maximum heat absorption. It's made in France by Apilco, a leading porcelain manufacturer, which has supplied culinary professionals since 1906. Oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. 3 3/4-qt. cap.; 11" x 8".
