Chicken in Milk

Bloggers always seem to have a story to tell. There's always something to tell, to share and to write about. But today is an exception for me. I'm not feeling well and I'm not in the mood to tell a story *sorry*. My kids have been sick for 5 days and I didn't have much time for internet. To all my friends, thanks for dropping by.

When I saw this recipe, I raised my eyebrows ;). Chicken in Milk?? Never had it before, usually I cooked chicken with coconut milk or cream. I was so curious and wanted to give it a try.

Chicken in Milk

And heyyyy.....who would have thought this combination would work? So easy to do. The chicken was tender and the sauce was flavourful. It's a very aromatic dish.

But I wasn't pretty satisfied because I put too much sage on it :(. The rest was good!

Chicken in Milk

Ingredients :
•1 x 1.5k/ 3½lb organic chicken (dita-I used chicken legs)
• sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 115g/4oz or ½ a pack of butter
• olive oil
• 1/2 cinnamon stick
• 1 good handful of fresh sage, leaves picked (dita-I used dried sage)
• zest of 2 lemons
• 10 cloves of garlic, skin left on
• 565ml/1 pint milk

Got Milk?

Directions :
Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5, and find a snug-fitting pot for the chicken. Season it generously all over, and fry it in the butter and a little olive oil, turning the chicken to get an even colour all over, until golden. Remove from the heat, put the chicken on a plate, and throw away the oil and butter left in the pot. This will leave you with tasty sticky goodness at the bottom of the pan which will give you a lovely caramelly flavour later on.

Put your chicken back in the pot with the rest of the ingredients, and cook in the preheated oven for 1½ hours. Baste with the cooking juice when you remember. The lemon zest will sort of split the milk, making a sauce which is absolutely fantastic.

To serve, pull the meat off the bones and divide it on to your plates. Spoon over plenty of juice and the little curds. Serve with wilted spinach or greens and some mashed potato.

  11. Chicken looks delicious!

    Did you get rid of the milk curds? I tried roasting pork in milk and the milk broke. It looked unappetizing so I didn't know what to do with it.

  15. Elsye : kalo pake susu, kare ala londo ya, Sye ;). Iya udah baikan semua kok, tinggal gue masih diare :P

    Retno : jangan dibandingin makanan yang harusnya pake santen trus dibikin pake susu pasti rasanya bakal sedikit beda :D, mending bikin menu yang beda sekalian yg emang pake susu :P

  16. Linda : yes, many people said that marinate chicken with milk will make the chicken tender :). Thanks Linda.

    Mindy : makasih Ndoel. Coba deh, tapi jangan kebanyakan sage kayak gue, atau malah diskip aja. Aroma jadi dominan si sage.

  17. Foni : tauk nih musim panas keparat! :D si arwen muntaber, leia flu, gue kayak arwen, diare tapi gak pake muntah2. Tauk deh pada salah makan apa, padahal gak pernah jajan2. Soal manggang disesuain ajalah, tergantung kompor lo juga kan, beda kompor beda panas. Itu patokan doang kok. Gue sendiri lupa sampe brapa lama, tapi kayaknya sih sampe 1 jam lebih juga.

    Ambar : makasih tante Ambar

    Ayin : iya gue kalo liat mas Jamie itu perasaan kok badannya gak sehat gitu ya.

  18. JS : nope, I didn't get rid the milk curds. I like the way it tastes ;).

    Leslie : thank you, dear.

    Melissa : it's not in the step but I modified it. Just don't put too much lemon or it will get bitter.
