Ingredients
  Broiling chickens 2 , quartered
  Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped tarragon 4 Teaspoon (Dried Or Fresh)
  Chopped parsley 4 Teaspoon
  Chopped chives 4 Teaspoon
  Lemon 1⁄2
  Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dry sherry 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Toast slice 6 (Thin)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

1. Preheat oven to slow (250° F.). Remove the necks and backbones from the chicken parts and reserve for another use.
2. In a paper bag combine the flour, salt, pepper and two teaspoons each of the tarragon, parsley and chives. Add a few chicken parts at a time and shake to coat well with the seasoned flour. Place the chicken, skin side down, in a shallow buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with the juice from the lemon half and cover with aluminum foil.
3. In a saucepan combine the butter, lemon juice, sherry and the remaining herbs. Heat until the butter melts.
4. Bake the chickens one to one and one-half hours, lifting the foil and basting every twenty minutes with the butter sauce. Toward the end of the cooking time, increase the oven temperature to hot (400° F.), remove the foil, and turn the chicken to let it brown lightly. If necessary add a little more wine or water to the pan so that there will be ample sauce.
5. Sprinkle the chicken with additional freshly chopped herbs
