“This recipe was originally named "Uncle Dick's Chicken". Don't let the simplicity of this recipe fool you it is simply delicious, moist, tender and you will swear there is some secret ingredient in it. Try it I know you will love it! Serve over rice or noodles with the milk gravy over top.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 fryer, cut up (enough for 4 people)
  • 3 tablespoons lite olive oil or 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 quart whole milk (do not use 2%)


  1. That's all!
  2. Put the oil in the bottom of a larger saucepan (so it will hold the chicken in one layer), brown on all sides until it is golden all over. Pour off any excess oil.
  3. Salt & pepper generously.
  4. Pour in enough milk to cover the chicken pieces.
  5. Simmer on low heat, uncovered until the chicken is cooked and fork tender, approx. 30 minutes.
  6. The milk should have cooked down so it is like gravy.
  7. Serve.
