Golden rabbit pieces covered in a savory herbed gravy make this a satisfying, stick-to-your-ribs main dish. One of my favorite herbs, tarragon, provides subtle flavor that goes so well with rabbit. -Yvonne Kessler, Pangman, Saskatchewan
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons dried tarragon

- 2 rabbits (2 to 2-1/2 pounds each), cut up
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 2 cups chicken broth
- In a resealable plastic bag, combine flour, tarragon, salt and pepper. Add the rabbit pieces, one at a time, and shake well.

"Excellent! Quick, easy, and very tasty. The rabbit can be dry so watch your cooking time on it. I could easily see substituting chicken in this recipe as well."
