"Yummy baked chicken flavored with citrus and tarragon. I like recipes that let me sit and relax with guests while it cooks and smells amazing. Prep time is marinating time."

This sauce is to die for! I made 1 chicken breast for myself and made 1/2 of the sauce. I ended up dipping my potatoes and peas in this sauce too. lol. Truly awesome dish. Thanks for sharing, breezer.

Too bad we're limited to only 5 stars. This is worth 6 stars, hands down! The time it takes to prepare is mostly marinating and baking time, the hands-on time is really minimal, maybe 10 minutes total. The orange tarragon sauce is so delicious over the chicken. I drizzled some of the extra sauce over plain rice too, and it was great. Using fresh tarragon was well worth it because the fresh herb taste really came through. Thanks, breezermom. This was delicious!
