Bake chicken:

2 1/2-3 lbs chicken breast, bone-in
4 small sprigs fresh tarragon
1 T vegetable oil

1. Carefully separate skin from chicken and tuck 2 sprigs of tarragon under skin.
2. Massage skin with oil
3. Place in small roasting pan and bake at 375 degrees F about 55 minutes, or til cooked
through.
4. Let stand at room temperature until juices retreat and chicken cool enough to handle.
5. Remove skin from breast and discard tarragon. Cut meat from bone and pull meat into
shreds, or cube if you prefer.

Blend following ingredients:

1/4-1/3cp mayonnaise
2 T sour cream
1 1/2 T chopped fresh tarragon leaves

Use less mayo and more vinegar if you prefer a thinner or lower cal version. Pour over chicken
and serve on top of blanched asparagus.
