Smothered Chicken

Smothered Chicken
from “Old Fashioned Country Cooking” found at Cracker Barrel

2 tablespoons vinegar
1 (3 1/2 lb) broiler chickens (any whole chicken will do)
4 stalks celery
4 potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 small onion, sliced
carrots (optional)
salt and pepper

Place the vinegar in the bottom of a deep ovenproof casserole dish or Dutch oven with a cover. Add chicken and surround with vegetables. Add seasonings to taste. Cover tightly and roast at 350* for 1 hour or until the chicken is done.
The meat will be moist and juicy without having a strong vinegar taste.
