Jamie Olivers Roast Chicken in Milk

Jamie Oliver's Chicken in Milk - from internet
A rather odd recipe on Jamie Oliver's site. It calls for roasting a chicken in a big pot with a pint of milk, a lot of lemon zest, a cinnamon stick, and unpeeled garlic cloves. Brown a whole chicken in copious amounts of olive oil or butter.  Pour in some milk, two lemons' worth of zest, a cinnamon stick, and fresh sage leaves. Scatter in a handful of garlic cloves in their jackets. Oliver says to throw away all that extra fat but I recommend saving it for cooking potatoes or vegetables. Put in the oven and roast for an hour and a half.  Covered for 1/2 the time.  Then uncovered to finished.  Its unexpected combination of ingredients and method you may think could never work but you be surprised and delighted with this dish.
