Oh my, oh my

What do these things have in common?
1/2 a cinnamon stick
lemon zest (from my backyard)
garlic cloves
sage leaves (from my backyard)
Let me tell you.
They are the ingredients, along with an organic chicken and fresh pepper that make THE tastiest chicken dinner ever.
This will be a repeat recipe!
I promise.
I am so lazy about repeating dishes...I can't help it,  there are so many good looking recipes out there...more recipes than I have time for...of course if I'd start cooking on the weekends it would help!

Thank you Jamie Oliver.
Get your recipe... Chicken in Milk.

I first read about this recipe over at "the kitchn"...part of the Apartment Therapy site...which is a wonderful, inspiring time sucking site to scroll through.
So, I've heard...I so rarely spend any time surfing the net.
ah hem,cough cough.

Seriously though, Jamie Oliver is the Naked Chef dude out of the UK and this is the first, to my knowledge, recipe I have made of his and judging by this scrumptious feast it will not be my last.
Mr. Oliver suggests a side of wilted greens and mashed potatoes but I opted for broccolini, white rice and a baguette...for the garlic cloves of course!
The lemon zest/ milk combo creates a flavorful sauce, scoop a wee bit o' sauce over the rice and true comfort food have ye!
On the stove, as I write, in the big dutch oven, simmers the carcass, a bunch of veggies and water.
Cooking stock for later in the week.
I am trying to plan ahead and create as little waste as possible.
Lucy feasted tonight too...on boiled giblets!
Lucky dog!
