I've substituted pork for the chicken in this recipe, cook in clay pot at 385 for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until pork falls off the bone.

Chicken Cacciatore by Shopper (Christiane )

I use 5 or 6 chicken breasts ( Half a breast each )
3 tablespoons shortening ( I use light olive oil )
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic minced
3 stalks celery chopped
1 can ( 1 pound or 16 oz ) tomatoes - i use the diced ones
1 can ( 8 ounce ) tomato sauce
1/3 minced green pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed basil
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup Chianti wine ( if desired )

Brown chicken breasts in hot oil in skillet
Layer onion slices in slow cooker
Put browned ckicken pieces on top of onion slices
Then add remaining ingredients ( i put them all in a bowl first and mix them together and then pour over the chicken breasts)
Cover and cook on Low 6 to 8 hrs ( or High 3- 4 hrs )
Discard bay leaf.
Serve chicken pieces with sauce over buttered spaghetti

Be sure to read the directions for cooking with your clay pot.....you have to soak it for a while and start it in a cold oven, if I remember correctly. Will look in my clay cooker cookbook and see if there is a recipe for cooking pork chops.

Pork chops are not a good choice for clay pot cookery. they don't do well with long slow cooking. Over cooked lean pork gets stringy and tough.
Therea re many other things that you can cook however.
Tehre are lots of recipes in the link posted.

Cut excess fat from chops and sprinkle with pepper.

thanks so much for all the great recipes. I ended up just taking a crockpot recipe with less liquid and it was delicious. I have a glazed clay cooker, so I soaked the lid only as directed on the mfg site, and started from a cold oven. I will save the recipes above and try them as well - again thanks!
