Mmmmm…Milk Chicken

22 Apr

Okay, so here in the blog world, everyone and their mother has already made Jamie Oliver’s milk chicken recipe. It’s been on my list of “recipes to try” for ages, and I finally got around to making it this weekend (I must have been inspired by Jamie Oliver’s new show, Food Revolution, which I love!). I’ve heard a lot of praise for this recipe and I can tell you that it is all well deserved. The chicken, braised in milk, with sage, lemon zest, and garlic, literally falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. Quite simply, it’s amazing.

The finished product, with a golden, crispy skin!

I served ours with roasted, fingerling potatoes and lightly steamed spinach. I drizzled the sauce from the pan over the chicken and spinach.

So my advice to all of you is to stop reading this blog, right now, and go make this chicken!

Better late than never!

Plus, the leftovers make the most divine chicken salad when mixed with scallions, mayonnaise, dijon, and parsley.

    You were right. Deliciously tasty. Chicken breasts worked out fine, and bonus, no bones to deal with afterward! Definitely whole milk next time, and less lemon. I’m planning to turn that juice into a nice cream sauce and put the leftover chicken over pasta with steamed vegetables. Thanks!
