Tobie's Chicken cooked in milk

Another of the recipes that Tobie Puttock cooked at the Good Food and Wine Show was a chicken cooked in milk. Sounded interesting and looked delicious.

The whole chicken is seasoned and browned. Some lemon peel, garlic and sage is then added to the hot pan before putting the chicken back in and then the milk. 

The lid is put on and then it goes in to the oven to cook.

We prepared some polenta to serve with the chicken and also roasted some carrot and parsnip. Just yesterday the gorgeous Maria over at ScandiFoodie posted a recipe for roasted vegetables and so I tried her dressing of lemon and orange juice, honey, verjus and nutmeg to bake my vegetables in.

What a delicious meal, in fact my daughter declared it was the best dinner ever! The chicken was soft and tasty, the polenta was really tasty. But to be honest the vegetables were the star. They were so delicious with their sweet coating.

Some great recipes, I am looking forward to trying some of them out.


  1. oh seriously Yum. Who would have thought it? Coconut milk maybe, but just plain milk? Will have to try this one and let you know. cheers Wendy

  2. mmm honey roasted veg sounds right up my alley!

  3. I would never have thought to cook chicken in milk!

  4. If a milk bath was good enough for Cleopatra, I can only imagine how happy that chicken must have been! lol. Sounds like it would have been deliciously succulent and tender!

  5. Great idea!It seems yummy and aromatic!

  6. Yum!!! I make pork in a similar way! I love meat cooked in milk, it always comes out tender and moist! The vegetables sounds amazing too! :-)

  7. I've made a Nigella recipe where she cooks Southern Fried Chicken in milk before frying it. It was so tender!

  8. this is really interesting! i suppose it's similar to chicken in a curry with less spices
