Broiled Tarragon Chicken is a flavoursome assault on the sense. The flavour and aroma of this dish is a perfect blend of simple ingredients. Creating a marinade of shallots, tarragon and chicken stock allows the chicken to absorb the flavours without being too intense. Using the marinade to baste the chicken gives an extra boost whilst broiling cooks the chicken without additional fats or oils. I always serve this recipe on a bed of rice, it goes so well with the chicken and the sauce. The Marinade is absorbed by rice and nothing wasted. Also, try this with a salad for a lovely summertine surprise.
Broiled Tarragon Chicken
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl except the chicken to create a marinade.
- Add the chicken and marinate in the frige for 1 to 2 hours.
- Place the chicken pieces on a baking sheet and place about 8 inches (20 cm) under a preheated broiler.
- Cook until browned on both sides, about 15 to 20 minutes per side, basting occasionally with the marinade.
