Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 chicken, cut up ... or 4-5 chicken breasts
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 T. Kitchen bouquet (optional) (I never have it on hand)
1 T. Curry
1/4 tsp. dry Tarragon
1/4 tsp. Rosemary

Directions:
Directions:
Marinate chicken overnight or for several hours. Turn frequently (remove from fridge to get at room temperature a half hour before baking). Bake 1 hour in 350 degree oven. Sauce is good on rice or noodles (This is her note and the recipe is old - we probably wouldn't want to do it today. Although, I wonder if you could cook the rice or noodles in the sauce. That way everything would get cooked)

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you use this for lunch, probably it's best to marinate overnight. As I had it for our supper, I put the chicken breasts in the marinade at 9:00 AM. I turned them every hour and a half. It stays well in the oven at low heat if guests are late. The only tedious part of this dish is the bother of being around to turn the pieces of chicken, but that isn't much and it's really so simple to cook and serve.

This recipe was one of my Aunt Hat's. She sent it to me in the late 70's. It has been entered exactly as Aunt Hat had it written out except for a parenthesis I added at the end of the directions.
