French sauces have this essential herb in all the sauces; it also makes a beautiful part of the composition of different types of sauces; this super herb is most frequently used in the vinegar.


Tarragon is the herb that loves summer and spring, so you can taste the best tarragon chicken starters in these seasons. It might be available in the warmer climates of winter. But the best quality of Tarragon only arrives in the summer or springs. Heat spoils the Tarragon chicken dishes by turning them bitter just like other green herbs.

Finding Tarragon takes some right amount of hunt as it is not easily found like parsley or cilantro. You could grow them at home or find them at the supermarket stores or farmers markets.

Tarragon is easily attainable as the dried herb form as it is sold year-round and you could easily find it in the grocery store and create some exotic tarragon chicken recipes at home only, but the drying of this herb deducts lots of its original spice from the fresh herb.

When used as the seasoning of simple roast chicken or flavouring for grilled fish, this green herb works wonders; this herb can also make an excellent substitute of fresh parsley.



It is a real single pan magic recipe, a perfect tarragon chicken signature dish for every house party!
