chicken cooked in milk

Having tried pork cooked in milk I decided to try this recipe by Jamie Oliver. The flavour is delicate and delicious.


Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF) and choose a pot which just fits your chicken. Season the chicken with salt and freshly ground black pepper and fry in a little olive oil until golden brown on all sides. Discard the olive oil then and the zest of 2 lemons, ½ a cinnamon stick, 10 unpeeled cloves of garlic, a generous handful or two of fresh sage leaves and 560ml (19 fl oz) of milk. Bake in the oven for 1 – 1½ hours. Jamie Oliver suggests serving this with mash but I served it with roasted vegetables.
