Chicken Roasted in Coconut Milk
I found this on Pinterest and made this when Dan was out of town a few years ago but haven't made it since. I've told him about it...and raved about it...but he thought it sounded weird so we never tried it again! UNTIL last night :)
We buy whole chickens at Costco because they're so cost effective and delicious. We then stick them in the freezer to use at a later date. Earlier this week Dan took one out of the freezer and was going to throw it in the crockpot, but then forgot about it...which gave me the perfect opportunity to cook something for him for a change! Plus, it gave me a chance to prove him wrong and show him that this is actually a delicious way to cook chicken. Win-win!
Here's the original recipe: Jamie Oliver's Chicken in Milk
It's pretty simple...but here's what I did:
1. Preheat the oven to 375
2. Season the chicken with salt/pepper. Brown the entire chicken in 3 tbsp of butter & 2 tbsp of coconut oil. Brown one side and then use a tongs to flip it and brown every side
3. Put all these ingredients into the dutch oven with the chicken.
4. Bake for 90 minutes
I also figured I'd throw in this sweet picture...just because.
A boy and his dog. They're so sweet!!
