Chicken in Milk - For 1

I find it really hard to cook for just two people. We always seem to have an endless supply of leftovers in our fridge. P is back home in Perth at the moment. After 3 days of eating noodles (the instant type with my own toppings), I decided to turn one of the recipes I've made plenty of times before into a recipe for one.

Dinner for One - Chicken in Milk.
recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver's TV show ~ 'Oliver's Twist'
  • 1x Merryland Chicken Thigh Piece
  • rind from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of whole dry sage (fresh if you have any)
  • 3 whole cloves of garlic (smashed)
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme (again..fresh if you have any)
  • 1/2 a stick of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of milk (full cream works preferred)
  • butter & olive oil
  • salt & pepper
Season the chicken with salt & pepper.

Using a small saucepan (one that the chicken thigh can just nicely fit into), melt the butter in the olive oil. Add garlic then chicken and brown on both sides. About 2 mins each.

Into the saucepan add in the milk, herbs and the cinnamon stick.

Bring the milk to a boil. Cover and continue to simmer on medium-low heat for about 35 mins. Until the chicken is cooked (ie. juices run clear) and the milk has started turning into little pre-cheese curdles.
