One source tells us that during the Middle Ages “there was a wide-spread belief that the herb tarragon could not only ward off serpents and dragons, but could also heal snake bites.” We don’t recommend this meal to get rid of rattlers, but a variety of vegetables combined with the wonderful flavor of tarragon makes this main dish both healthy and tasty.

1 medium sized chicken                                     1 small can pimentos
1/4 cup canola oil                                              1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup chopped onion                                          1/2 cup celery
1 cup chopped bell pepper                                  seasoning
1 cup fresh mushrooms                                      1/2 teaspoon tarragon
1 small can tomato paste                                    brown rice

Cut up and pan fry chicken until brown. Stir in flour. Let brown, then add water to make gravy. In another pan brown onions, bell pepper, and celery, then add tomato paste, mushrooms, seasonings, and tarragon. Add this to chicken and gravy. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve over brown rice.
