My ultimate favorite cookbook is "365

Sedaker.....even with my picky family, we have found some wonderful

chicken, cut up
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons fresh chopped tarragon, or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried
cup heavy cream
1. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. In a large frying pan
or flameproof casserole,
heat butter over medium-low heat. Add
chicken and cook for 5 minutes. turn chicken, add onion and garlic,
for 5 to 7 minutes, until onion is softened but not browned.
2. Sprinkle flour over chicken and toss for 1 minute. Add
tarragon, and 1 cup water. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until
tender. Remove chicken to a serving platter.
Cover with foil to keep
3. Boil sauce in pan, stirring often, until reduced by half, about 5
cream and simmer for 3 minutes. Season with salt and
pepper to taste. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.
There is also a Quick Tarragon Chicken using boneless skinless chicken
breast halves... In step one, just brown
chicken before removing it
from pan. Add 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard to step 2, simmer chicken 10
350°F. Place browned chicken in a baking dish. Brush with teriyaki
spoon on salad dressing. Sprinkle with cheese, green
onions, and bacon bits to top. Bake for 30+ minutes or until chicken
is cooked through.
**I brushed the chicken on both sides with the Teriyaki. sauce. I also
used a lot more
cheese, onions, and bacon. Do it to suit your taste.
