Finally, it has arrived. My first recipe post, I am excited to finally be bringing this to you. I must start off by saying I am not the most phenomenal cook in the world but neither am I the worse. What I know how to cook I do well and I will share these recipes with you. I will also be trying out various dishes and depending on the level of success I will write about these too. So without further ado please enjoy my first recipe post.
Chicken Tarragon is a dish I adapted from a recipe book, replacing pork with chicken, which I find to be a better alternative. All ingredients are easily obtainable from supermarkets. It is a very simple dish to make and it looks good too, yum.
- One onion (I use half an onion for myself)
- Crème Fraiche
- Diced Chicken
- Wholegrain mustard
- Tarragon (fresh or stored)
- White wine (optional but it does help with the flavour)
- Maximum amount of time to cook is 30 minutes.
- First of all finely chop your onion and add it to a frying pan to cook on a low heat with oil. Cooking the onions slowly softens it up.
- Dice the chicken and season.
- When the onions begin to brown add the chicken and turn up the heat.
- Let the chicken cook through until most pieces are white, then add the wine. I just pour a little in, perhaps 2-3 tablespoons worth.
- When the stock starts to boil add the wholegrain mustard (2 teaspoons) and mix around the pan.
- After a minute or two add the crème fraiche (2 tablespoons) and again mix around the pan.
- Leave for 3-4 minutes then add the tarragon. Allow to cook for a further 5 mins or so for all the flavours to come together.
- I usually have this dish with mashed potato but rice is also a good choice.
And there we have it chicken tarragon. Straight forward ingredients and simple to cook.
Give it a try and let me know how you get on.
Do you have a recipe using chicken and tarragon?
