A delightful way to make chicken. It is easy and the chicken comes out extremely tender. The rosemary (from my little herbal garden) and garlic gave it a wonderful flavor. —Kenza Saadi

What You'll Need
  • 1 whole chicken cut in pieces, with skin and bones
  • 7 cloves of garlic crushed
  • quarter cups olive oil
  • 2 cups whole milk (half a cup set aside)
  • 1 bunch fresh rosemary
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • two pounds baby potatoes
  1. In a bowl, mix the garlic, rosemary, one and half cup of whole milk, about a quarter cup of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In a large oven baking dish, place the liquid and add the pieces one at a time making sure they are well soaked. Do it by hand.
  3. Place about a kilogram of washed baby potatoes among the chicken pieces. Cut the potatoes in half if they seem too big.
  4. Add half a cup of milk on top.
  5. Place in a hot oven (200º C. / 390º F.) for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces and mix the potatoes, and continue cooking for about 15 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces once more and leave for another 10 minutes making sure the chicken and the potatoes have a golden color.

This was every bit as good as it looks in the picture; I have done milk braised chicken before but this seemed easier and was very flavorful. I used four chicken thighs and about half the potato with the designated amounts of other ingredients. Next time I might cut the liquid a bit but will certainly make again.
