Bon Appétit (May 2010)
We had a surprise this spring.
All of a sudden, herbs that we had planted last year in our window boxes were back in a big way. Rosemary had new growth, our sage and parsley plants were three times the size that they were last summer and there were several new sprigs on our thyme as well.
After all this winter's snow, we assumed we'd be starting fresh this summer. But then again, no one has ever accused us of having green thumbs (though we are trying our hands at growing a small garden in our backyard this summer -- more on that when/if any of our plants come out of the ground!).
But of all these herbs, it was tarragon that's back in the biggest way. Our little plant from last summer is, as they say, all growed up. It's big, it's bushy, it's screaming for us to use some tarragon already.
So we were eager to try a new tarragon chicken recipe from the latest Bon App, which essentially marries those two ideas.
