  2. Bring to a simmer, then turn off heat.
    Add to milk the lemon zest, garlic cloves, cinnamon, Sage, and Rosemary. Cover pot with a lid or foil and roast 45 minutes. Remove lid and roast until a thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thigh registers 165°, 30 to 45 minutes more. Remove from oven and carve or shredded chicken. It should pull off the bone easily. If needed, add salt to sauce to taste. Serve, spooning sauce from pan over meat. Makes four servings.
