"A lime-tarragon marinade for juicy flavorful chicken pieces - moist and delicious. I like to marinate the pieces and cook them on the grill for a nice summer meal." — Cindy B

This was great for chicken kabobs. I used half the amount of olive oil, 1 Tbsp. of dried minced onion, Frank's red hot, and let this marinate 24 hours.
The whole family enjoyed this recipe. I combined everything in a freezer bag and froze it. When I was ready to grill, I removed it from the freezer the night before to thaw. I added some of the juice from the marinade to my rice cooker for a flavorful rice dish.
We made this on our new George Foreman grill as it is too cold outside. Made per recipe and it came out great. The lime juice made it. Thanks!
This was a big hit at a recent pot-luck. I doubled the recipe, but my husband thought that the oil didn't need to be doubled since it flared up on the grill. I used organic chicken thighs, and made extra for leftovers.
This was good but as usual I didnt have enough time to marinade this as long as I should have... Everyone liked it still!
This was flavorful, and the chicken was so tender. Great recipe! I love the lime flavor in grilled foods.
This recipe was good baked too. It had a great taste to it. I wasn't really into tarragon before, but this recipe made me a fan of it.
Really enjoyed this recipe exactly as is. Was tempted to add garlic but was glad I didn't. Lime/tarragon combo is a unique delicious flavour. Used freshly squeezed lime juice, don't know if it makes that much difference. Also used skinless boneless thighs. Will definitely make again. Thanks Cindy B!
