The striker scored after 33 minutes to set the Italians on their way in the Group H fixture as they dominated from start to finish.
Kevin-Prince Boateng made the result safe when he doubled Milan's advantage against a BATE side who were never really in the game in the second-half.
Ibrahimovic is delighted with his performance and has paid particular praise to Boateng and the rest of his team-mates.
"We created many chances tonight but the goal only arrived towards the end of the first half. We played well, we created and won 2-0 which is what we wanted," he told Rai Sport.
"On top of that, Kevin [Prince Boateng] scored a great goal.
"When the team plays well, I also do well, my team-mates help me and I help them back.
"We're doing good things lately, we are more dangerous than before. If we play the way we did tonight, we'll go far."
Milan play Lecce in Serie A Sunday afternoon and Ibrahimovic hopes his side can maintain a winning run as he looks ahead to domestic matters.
"We want to win against Lecce, but that's not all. We want to win all of our games," concluded the striker.
The Italians level on seven points with Barcelona at the top of Group H. The Spanish giants beat Viktoria Plzen 2-0 at Camp Nou in the other fixture.
