This chicken indeed has an unusual flavor, but the tarragon is the main component of the taste, after the salt. The amount of lemon pepper is the culprit, I believe, for the excess saltiness in the flavor, especially since the marinade liquid cooks down and contentrates. I made this recipe exactly as directed, and it does yield nicely colored BLSL chicken. I made it because I had some vermouth, and I was curious to know how it would do in cooking. The vermouth flavor was there, but in spite of the amount, it did not overpower the other flavors. I would recommend using ground black pepper, lemon zest and salt, as a replacement for the lemon pepper, in order to control the saltiness of the dish.
