Easy & Delicious Tarragon Roast Chicken

Hey there! How was everyone’s weekend? It still feels like the weekend for me because mom’s in town and we are having a big time 🙂

Bowen and I were in Jackson this weekend celebrating one of my oldest and bestest friend’s engagement–what a wonderful time we had! Mom drove me back on Monday while Bowen hit the road for work. I got an early Christmas present on the way back–a SEWING MACHINE! Mom’s been teaching me and we’ve also been doing a lot of cooking and healthful eating.

It’s a one pot meal but it’s packed with more flavor than you can imagine. I also think this braised chicken dish is elegant enough to serve for company too.

Garlic and white wine, tarragon and cherry tomatoes are just about all you need to send your taste buds soaring. Enjoy! Please let me know if you make this dish–leave a comment below I would LOVE to hear what you think.

Notes
  1. The most delicious part of this dish is the broth the roasting creates, you will need a spoon I promise! To make a sauce from this liquid, ladle 1 cup of liquid into a sauté pan and reduce by half on medium heat, strain and pour over chicken.
