    This recipe is great and is very tasty as well as easy! Tarragon has become a new favorite spice.  -  29 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I found this to be a very tasty recipe. I also used whole chicken pieces and found the cooking time was too much for me. I would reduce it to 30 minutes then the additional 10 minutes. For boneless I would reduce it even more. Great flavor however.  -  14 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Not very flavorful and the chicken was very dried out (though this might have more to do with the small cut and cooking time than the recipe). Very simple and quick to make, but I thought that a lot could have been done to make it much better. Maybe try baking the chicken in the marinade to keep in the flavor more?  -  07 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
