A very different version of Fried Chicken

I have been craving fried chicken over the past three weeks but had yet to have had time to make it. When I did have time it seemed one, two or all three of the kids were gone for the evening so in the end, I still haven't had my good old American Fried Chicken - although I bought some a couple days ago and it's ready to go, whenever I am!

So looking over some 'different' fried chicken recipes I came across this one. Now, I'll be the first to admit that I've never seen a Fried Chicken recipe version that included tarragon, chervil and chives. You just don't see that in a Fried Chicken recipe! Roasted? Yes. Baked? Yes. But fried?

So, I'm adding this to the online collection but I'm going to let you try it before me. LOL. I am going to be making my good old Southern Fried Chicken. But... perhaps after I quell my craving I'll make this version and let you know what I think.


Fried Chicken

1 whole chicken chicken, cut in 8-10 pieces
1 tsp chopped tarragon
