Jamie Oliver's Chicken in Milk is amazing! To give it more of a sauce, instead of keeping the lid off for the entire cooking time, we keep the lid on for the first half. It's kind of in between a braise and a roast, but we highly recommend it.

Looks delish, what other alternative for someone who doesn't mix dairy and poultry?

For 3 delicious ones without dairy, look at these Joan Nathan recipes from South & Southwest Asia:

Fesenjan (Persian with pomegranate juice and walnuts. you could garnish with pomegranate seeds)

Chicken curry recipe from Cochin, traditionally served at Passover, makable year round. It might be hard to locate curry leaves, depending on where you live. May substitute half as many lime or bay leaves for them (not exact, but close)

PS The 3 Joan Nathan recipes may look complicated, but they are each basically a saute then braise, maybe with a garnish. If there look to be too many spices, cut down the number and use a little more of the ones you like better. Or substitute (heresy! I know, I know) curry blend in the Cochin recipe.

Amanda's Spatchcocked and Braise-Roasted Chicken is wonderful (and cooks in half the time of a normal roast chicken)!

Speaking of chicken adobo this is my favorite version. The full fat coconut milk adds a delicious richness. I have this bubbling away in my slow cooker right now. I did add slices of ginger, some carrot and a few mushrooms because they needed to be used.

An old favorite of mine which is very fast and easy is Roman Style Chicken by Giada de Laurentiis: http://www.foodnetwork...#!. I have made it for dinner parties as well as just for my husband and I at home with happy results. Enjoy!
