Tarragon Chicken

I've had Tarragon growing in our garden for about a year now, I was excited about it when I got a little plant from food swap but it occured to me the other day that I've hardly used it for cooking.
I went in search of a recipe that would showcase the Tarragon and came up with this Tarragon Chicken recipe which not only turned out to be super easy and yummy but I actually had all the ingredients on hand!

First thing was to chop up an onion and gently cook it in a non-stick pan with a little oil and 2 cloves of Garlic, then I added Chicken Thigh Fillets and browned them on both sides. I added half a cup of White Wine, a cup and a half of Chicken Stock and simmered for about 20 minutes.

I mixed 2 teaspoons of Cornflour with a little stock, stirred it into the Chicken mixture and cooked it for about 2 minutes, then I added half a cup of Sour Cream and 2 tablespoons of Tarragon Leaves. Once this has warmed through its ready!

I served the Chicken with Potatoes, carrots and (much to my son's disgust!) Brussels Sprouts, everyone loved the chicken!


  1. Very impressive Linda....I reckon this would be nice with mash potatoe :)
    I agree with your son, drop the brussel sprouts :p
    I guess you could dry that herb as well??

  2. Thanks Chris! I might try drying some of the Tarragon.

  3. Linda, give the drying a go. I'm considering making some drying bags for certain people's christmas gifts. Without them, it's a bit messy and you lose alot of the leaves.

  4. It looks delicious and so simple too! :)
