Easy & Elegant - Milk Poached Chicken With Rosemary Garlic Oil

I don't make Chicken too often but when I do, I reliably revert to a few can't miss recipes. When it's not decadent Roasted Chicken with Orange Tarragon Butter or Ina Garten's Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic, Mimi Thorisson's Milky Chicken is a fantastic choice, in fact, I can still remember the day I first read her beautiful blog

I've probably made this recipe at least four times and it has never disappointed, but last night's dinner was especially flavorful. I was able to achieve a beautifully browned and crispy skin thanks to a quick infused oil I created. I basted the skin with it in the last fifteen minutes of cooking. I've included steps on how you do it below. For the Milk Poached Chicken Recipe and notes on our first time making it, click HERE. You won't be sorry. 

Rosemary and Garlic Infused Olive Oil
Bastes 1 Chicken

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil  
2 Large Cloves of Garlic, lightly crushed
4 Sprigs Rosemary (or similar herb of your choice)
2 Tablespoons Butter (optional but recommended) 
Salt and Pepper 

Warm Olive Oil over medium heat. Add Garlic and Rosemary. Cook until Garlic begins to get some color then lower the flame all the way. Allow to cook another 5-7 minutes (make sure Garlic doesn't burn). Turn off the flame and stir in 2 Tablespoons Butter. Add a sprinkle of Salt and some Pepper. You can use the oil for all different applications but it is especially good poured over a Roast Chicken in the last 15 minutes of cooking to achieve an extra crispy and flavorful skin. Enjoy!
