This is a recipe of the writer John Gardner which I read about in a magazine or newspaper years ago. The servings are quite hearty. The original used 12-15 chicken thighs, but I have on occasion substituted 6 large chicken legs (thigh and drumstick combined). He didn't give amounts for the herbs, butter and oil, so I've guessed. Cooking time is an estimate.
