Chicken with Fresh Herbs

4 chicken breasts, with bones and skin on
Assorted fresh herb leaves: French tarragon, thyme, lemon thyme, basil, oregano, sage
Melted butter (about 1/3 cup) or bottled vinaigrette salad dressing

Preheat oven to 350.

Ease skin away from the chicken meat and slip herb leaves under skin. Use one herb only from the above list, or a combination of herbs.

Brush breasts with melted butter or bottled vinaigrette and bake until chicken tests done (press with the back of a spoon; it should feel firm). Amount of baking time depends on size of chicken breasts.

Note: This procedure also works with a whole chicken or a Cornish game hen.
