How to make tarragon chicken with lime
- First of all, Pre-heat your oven to 350 F. Place fresh herbs, lemon juice, zest, garlic, mustard, olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in a food processor. Puree until you have a paste.
- Discard the neck and giblets of the chicken. Rinse the chicken from all sides and pat dry using paper towels. After this, Season the chicken both inside and out with salt and pepper.
- Remove the chicken skin from the cavity.
- Place the chicken on the stand and cover the chicken’s exterior with the remaining marinade. Marinade chicken for at least two hours before cooking. Before cooking, allow the chicken to come to room temperature.
- The chicken should be placed on a Teflon-lined baking sheet or in an oven-safe dish. To prevent them from burning, tie the wings to the body with a string or elastic band.
- To make room for the chicken’s height, move the oven rack to the hird in the oven. To keep the chicken moist, you can roast it in the drip tray. Roast the chicken until all of its skin is crispy and golden brown. If the top of the chicken is starting to brown too fast, you may need to put a little tinfoil hat on it.
- The chicken is ready when the legs turn a golden brown. Depending on how large your chicken is and the oven used, it may take between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 hours. After this, Allow the chicken to rest for five minutes before you cut it. Use a chicken scissor to cut the chicken from the front.
- Cut off the legs and breasts, and divide them into eight pieces. Serve the pan juices over the meat and top with fresh tarragon. Serve with roasted potatoes and a green leaf salad
