Orange Tarragon Chicken Thighs

Chicken is so common in weekly staples. There are so many ways to cook chicken though! I love the versatility. These chicken thighs have been my go to since I first made them. Not only are the flavors good, chicken thighs are very inexpensive. You can be super fancy on a budget with this meal! Doesn’t it look so pretty? Lol

I picked up Tarragon at a farmers market in Atlanta for around 3.00. I honestly had never used Tarragon before. I’m excited to try it in more recipes!

The good in this? Chicken is a lean source of protein. By removing the skin, we are able to reduce saturated fat that contributes to chronic diseases. Enjoy this with your favorite sides.
