This juicy and tender chicken is scented with the sweetness of tarragon and the healthy flavors of tomatoes, leeks, green onions and garlic (with a little white wine). This would be a nice company dish, or a homey supper served with buttered egg noodles and a salad. Prep time includes marinating, and you could use canned diced tomatoes (to equal 4 cups) instead of fresh to save some time; but in the summer use vegetables right out of the garden!
