Harry, in the US we call these Cornish Game Hens. Don't think they were raised in Cornwall though, their little legs would be wore down to nubbins by the time they hiked over to our grocers.

I appreciate your step by step pictures you often share.

Yes to Tarragon. This herb is perfect with chicken. Plus, I have lots growning in the garden. This recipe just made the short list.

Looks mighty good. Isn't 350 ml a lot of sherry vinegar to use? Or did I read that wrong?
