“This chicken is delicious and a snap to make! Once you've browned the chicken, simply pop it in the oven and baste it occasionally. Serve it over buttered noodles to soak up the luscious juices. Originally from the Parade magazine in the Sunday Houston Chronicle. My husband and I really enoy this delicious "comfort food" and when I make it, I use considerably less oil (about 1 tablespoon) and butter ( a scant tablespoon of light butter with canola oil) . I also pour off all accumulated fats except for about 1 tablespoon and deglaze the pot with a spash of white wine before adding the veggies and tarragon. An already cut up chicken may be used in place of ther whole chicken.”
