Servings: 5

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cinnamon stick or 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

10 garlic cloves, skinless but left whole (may use more if you are a garlic fan)

1/2 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup lemon juice and the zest of 1 lemon

2 cups 2% milk

2 tablespoons olive oil (enough to lightly coat the pan)

3 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs and/or legs (I use 1 1/2 pounds of each)

A few fresh thyme sprigs (may substitute sage)

Equipment:

oven

dutch oven

frying pan

pot

Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a Dutch oven or another heavy pot or casserole with a tight-fitting lid. Place the chicken, skin-side down, in the pot and allow it to cook without moving until the skin is nicely browned, about 10 minutes. (This step will render much of the fat, brown the skin, and is best done in two batches so as not to crowd the pan. I don’t bother to brown the side with little to no skin. See notes for a timesaving option.) Remove the browned chicken to a plate. Discard the excess oil, leaving the crusty bits on the bottom. This will add good flavor later.Put the chicken back in the pot with the rest of the ingredients, and cook in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes. (I don’t baste or even peek, although I have taken the chicken out after 1 hour and 20 minutes and it was fine. I have also cooked early and reheated.) The lemon juice will sort of curdle the milk, making a thick sauce, which is creamy and absolutely delicious.Serve with crusty bread or over rice, noodles, or potatoes, as desired, to soak up the delicious sauce. A side of peas or green vegetable of choice completes the meal.
