    Tarragon chicken

    Well, I just threw a chicken on my grill, it turned out great. Nothing fancy, I did the dry brine, then inserted a concoction of 1 tbsp canola oil mixed with 1tbsp dried tarragon underneath the skin. Tarragon is a great chicken spice, and this version didn't disappoint me. It is rather thick (the oil/spice mix), so I use a small spoon and my fingers to distribute it as evenly as I can.

    Just for inspiration, I started out with some good ole' bourbon, this is one of my three faves from the US of A:

    When the chicken was done, I took some of the juices that gathered in the bottom plate of the chicken stand, and used that to make a carrot puré. I boiled some (3-4) carrots, then mashed them and mixed with 0.3 cups double cream, 3 tbsp chicken juice, som lemon juice and ground cumin. What a nice flavor!

    I served it all with broccoli with some sprinkled mature hard cheese, roasted sunflower seeeds and lemon juice.

    Nice, clean, simple. All in all, a good grill session.

    The plate, ready to serve:

      Thanks, yep, the carrot mash was a spontaneous idea, but turned out great, thanks to the chicken jus. Will definitely riff on that one, and try out different combos.

    Awesome! Good choice in bourbon too. Drinking a little Knob Creek right now. Cheers!

      Knob creek and Bulleit, those are my other two choices. Good stuff!

    Great-looking meal, Henrik! That idea to use the grilled lemon and chicken juices in the carrot side dish is pure genius. You sure had some good sippin' and eatin' that night!
