A whole chicken in milk

This recipe originally from Jamie Oliver.  There are a few small changes from the original that, in my honest opinion (imho) I think improve on it!

Milk Chicken

Total cook and prep time: About 2 hours

One whole chicken – grain fed or organic is best

sea salt

fresh ground pepper

cayenne pepper

olive oil

1 cinnamon stick

2 lemons, zested

5 whole garlic cloves, skin left on

565 mL (2 cups) milk


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

  1. Heat oil in an oven safe pot.  Season the whole chicken with sea salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  2. Fry the chicken in oil on all sides until golden. Then remove it from a plate and discard the oil.
  3. Place the chicken and the rest of the ingredients back into the pan. (don’t clean it out first).
  4. Cover with a lid or foil and bake for 1 hour, basting once.
  5. Remove the cover and cook for another 30-45 minutes, again basting.
  6. To serve, cut chicken and serve with the sauce.

P.S. This goes great with oven roasted potatoes!
