To make up for last week’s lack of posts, I’ll share with you a recipe I tried out this weekend. I really loved the sour taste of the lemon and the very specific taste of tarragon, though it might be more appropriate in spring or summer, but it’s too good to ignore it even in the cold winter months! It’s really easy and I will surely make it more often!
Lemon Chicken with Tarragon
– 4 Chicken breasts
– 1 tbsp. of sweet chili powder
– 50 gr of flower
– 6 tbsps. of butter
– Some minced parsley
– 1 tsp. of tarragon (dried)
– 5 tbsps. of lemon juice (freshly squeezed, I only needed 1 lemon)
– 1 Lemon
– Salt & Pepper
This recipe serves 4
Remove anything you don’t want to eat from your chicken breasts (I am a person who has to have really clean pieces of meat and chicken, or I will lose my appetite…). Season your chicken with chili powder, salt and pepper, and coat with the flower.
Bake the chicken breasts in approx. 5 minutes, and after that make sure to keep them warm while you prepare the rest of the dish.
Melt 6 tablespoons of butter, add the herbs (tarragon and parsley) and the lemon juice and bring to a boil. Rinse the lemon and slice it.
Now you’re ready! Pour the lemon butter over the chicken breasts and garnish with a lemon slice! This recipe is great with some rice.

Fun fact: Tarragon in Dutch is “Dragon”.
Not the mythical flying creatures, though. Dragon in Dutch is “Draak”.
Since I’m reading A Game of Thrones, I decided to share some of George R.R. Martin’s quotes. He’s said a lot of things that are worth thinking about. I picked out 5 shorter quotes I liked, about life and books:
“There has to be a level of joy of what you’re doing.”
“All fiction has to have a certain amount of truth in it to be powerful.”
“Our differences are insignificant compared to what we have in common.”
“Nobody is a villain in their own story. We’re all heroes of our own stories.”
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
That last one is actually a quote from one of his books (I haven’t read it yet), but I included it because I think it’s the best one out there.
There are definetely more strong quotes in his books, but I’d only want to share those if I’ve actually read them. Out of context they might not have the same meaning…
