    See recipe for variations. Can substitute dried thyme for dried tarragon.

    This was delicious and lovely to bring to the table in its casserole dish. I have added it to my list of favorites as I will cook it many times again.

    Thank you @indio32 for your note. I used only one lemon a little extra tarragon. Wow! This was so delicious! Her mom's "Praised chicken" is one of my favorite recipes ever, and I when I saw this one with orzo (which I love), I had to try. Now I'm not sure which one is my fav. Will definitely make this again!

    Had this for a Sunday night supper using a good quality farmers market chicken. Was a bit worried about the cooking time as proper free range chickens can take a little longer to cook but the recipe instructions were spot on. The tarragon seemed to get slightly lost and next time I'd try with only 1.5 lemons worth of juice (mine might have been on the large side) but apart from that it was delicious and will definitely be doing this again.
