Tarragon is one of my favorite herbs. Well, that and basil. And cilantro. And – well, let's just say it's in the top five! Previously on the blog I've paired it with tomatoes, salmon, and with chicken and lemon. With this recipe I've combined it with olive oil, garlic and shallots, all cooked alongside the chicken. The prep time is really low and the ingredients list is short, which makes it ideal for a weeknight meal, but if you serve it with a fancy side dish you could definitely make it into something more!

How to Make Roast Tarragon Chicken

To make a quick herb oil for basting the chicken, mix together chopped fresh tarragon, olive oil, garlic paste, salt and pepper.

Finely chop 2-3 shallots and place them in the base of a small baking tray lined with foil. Add chicken pieces over the top – I used two chicken breasts on the bone. Spoon the tarragon oil over the chicken.Roast Tarragon Chicken - easy low carb recipe

Roast for 45-50 minutes or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165F (use a probe thermometer for this). Transfer the chicken  to a serving plate, then spoon the super soft (and sweet!) shallots over the top.
