Notes about this recipe

    Managed successfully as a midweek supper. Very successful with children who like orzo. Chicken was very well cooked after 1.5 hours: might try less next time, or lower temperature. Made with a very high quality chicken, and I seasoned it generously: the juices were delicious and I can't say that there was any taste of milk at all.

    With 10 garlic cloves and zest from 2 lemons, I thought I would like this recipe. Unfortunately, the taste of garlic and lemons were completely muted by milk. It was very bland tasting and not to our taste at all.

    Absolutely delicious. The chicken was moist and tender. This is a variation of a Jamie Oliver recipe but cooked half the time with the lid off so it browned nicely. The sauce was so tasty. A definite make again recipe.
