Yes, cooking roast chicken with milk is the new secret sauce for the tastiest most tender roast chicken ever. That is because the calcium in milk is the catalyst for a natural enzyme in the chicken that helps to make it tender. Calcium also breaks up the acidity. As an added bonus, the milk creates a creamy gravy that will make your juicy roast chicken even juicier.
Set the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Begin by seasoning the chicken and searing the whole chicken skin on the stovetop until brown. When done, place the chicken in a roasting pan. Season it with cinnamon, sage leaves, lemon zest, unpeeled garlic cloves and a generous pint of milk. Then place the chicken in the oven. Let it bake it for an hour and a half, regularly basting with the milk. The temperature of the roasted chicken, should be at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit before removing from the oven. Let it cool for 15-minutes.
Then prepare to wow the family. Got milk?
