Chicken in Milk

10/14/14


Last week, I had two different people send me this same recipe in one day.  Naturally I was like, fine Universe, FINE, I'll make it.  Especially after reading this article which raved and raved about it.  The recipe?  Roasted chicken cooked in milk.  I was extremely intrigued and slightly disgusted by the idea of it, but the former outweighed the latter and so I gathered up these random ingredients...   


Lemon zest, unpeeled garlic cloves, sage, whole milk and a cinnamon stick.  The recipe comes from chef Jamie Oliver, who claims the combination of ingredients form the most flavorsome sauce.  Actually he puts a 'u' in the word "flavorsome" because he's a silly Brit!  The only adjustment I made was suggested by this article, and that was to cover the chicken for 3/4 of the cooking time. 

So, what did I think?  Was it the best chicken recipe of all time?  Eh...

Listen, it was GOOD.  I loved squeezing out the sweet, roasted garlic, smothering it over the chicken, and dipping it all in the sauce.  But was it the most flavorsome sauce of all time?  That's a bold claim and I wasn't buying it.  However, if you're looking for something unique and tasty that's very simple to throw together... make this chicken!  I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.  (We should form a "food club" not unlike a "book club" where we try out recipes and then talk about them while eating ON TOP of discussing food.  Nobody ever reads the book anyway...)

When I first read the title of the post I was really unsure about this but if you say it's worth it, I'm willing to give it a try!

I thought the chicken didn't really taste like anything special, but the sauce cooking definitely smelled amazing, and it got better the 2nd day.
