Chicken tarragon recipe

I've never blogged about a recipe before, but after cooking this tonight, it tasted so good that I thought that the least I could do was to publicise it.

I bought Lisa Faulkner's 'Recipes from my Mother for my Daughter' a year or so ago, as I'd heard such good things about it. I have to admit that although I've flicked through it, this is the first time I've tried one of the recipes. We were looking for something a bit different from a traditional roast for Easter Sunday, and I thought this recipe might be worth a go. It was! To save the risk of breaching any copyright laws, you can find it here.

It was very easy to make. I left the chicken breasts frying lightly whilst I tidied up the kitchen, loaded the dishwasher and put some potatoes in the oven. I then chopped up the shallots and the tarragon and when the chicken was done, transferred that onto a plate, fried the shallots for a couple of minutes and added a glass of wine. Once that had simmered down by half, I added the double cream and the tarragon and stirred that whilst steaming some greens, returning the chicken to the pan for the last couple of minutes to warm through. This is what it looked like just before serving.

 It was really tasty, and took very little effort, which is a bonus as far as I'm concerned. I'll certainly be trying other recipes from Lisa Faulkner's book. If you'd like to join me, you can get it at Amazon.

If you try this recipe, I'd love to hear what you think of it.
