Celebrate National Milk Day: Baked Chicken, Scalloped Potatoes, Creamy Risotto

Written by Nick – 

January 11, 2011 is National Milk day! It’s time to break out your milk-stache and rejoice. National Milk day might feel like an odd holiday to celebrate, but every once in a while we all need a good reason to have an ice cold glass of milk (and cookies). But if you’re like me, you don’t always have a well-stocked fridge and milk is often the first thing to disappear. One thing I always have in the pantry is evaporated milk. Now, I’m probably not going to drink it with a cookie, but it’s great for baking anything! I like to use evaporated milk to give recipes that creamy and rich taste.

Here are some of my favorite “milk” recipes. Each uses Carnation evaporated milk, making it a perfect way to celebrate National Milk Day.

Crispy Baked Dijon Chicken

This dish above is super simple to put together. In less than 30 minutes you’ll be enjoying some zesty, crispy chicken. Keep the evaporated milk in the cupboard, the chicken in the freezer and the parmesan cheese on hand… you’ll have most of these ingredients already so it’s a perfect meal to whip up after a long day.

This side dish is great for entertaining. You’ll want to make enough to have leftovers, because who wouldn’t want some more tomorrow or the next day or the next day?

Simple Risotto with Peas & Parmesan

Another quick and simple dish you can whip up in a hurry, shown above. It’s a staple at any bachelor’s house. This risotto always comes out looking and tasting professional but it’s so simple to put together.
