Tarragon Chicken

I love recipes that have only a few ingredients. This is one of my favorites. Sometimes I make it to warm up the house on a chilly day. On those days I bake it at 250 degrees until the internal temperature reaches 170. Other days I back it on 350 and bake potatoes with it.

Whole fryer chicken

2 Tablespoons butter

Tarragon leaves


I wash the chicken and rub butter all over it. I sprinkle salt and dried tarragon leaves all over it. I place it on the center of a Bundt pan and place the pan on a cookie sheet to catch the drippings. The chicken browns nicely all around when baked this way.
