Total Time:

1hrs 45mins




1hrs 30mins

Skill Level:



  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 - 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 cups milk or half and half
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • canola oil or butter, for cooking
  • a few strips of lemon zest or 1 lemon wedge
  • a few sprigs of parsley or sage

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
  2. Pat the chicken dry, season it with salt and pepper, and heat a heavy, ovenproof pot on the stovetop over medium-high heat. (Alternatively, use a heavy skillet.)
  3. Add a drizzle of oil and brown the chicken all over, turning it with tongs.
  4. Transfer the browned chicken to a pot or baking dish, if you used a skillet.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot, cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours, removing the lid for the last half an hour if you’d like to brown the top a little more.
  6. To serve, pull the meat off the bones and drizzle with sauce.
