CHICKEN WITH TARRAGON
Step 1 Pre heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4.
Step 2 Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a casserole dish over a medium to high heat. Season the chicken and brown in the dish for 10 mins until browned all over. Transfer to a plate.
Step 3 Add the remaining 1 tbsp oil to the casserole dish and turn the heat down to a low to medium heat. Add the spring onions, carrots and garlic to the dish and gently sauté for 5 minutes.
Step 4 Add the mustard, tarragon and stock and gently stir. Bring to a gentle simmer before stirring through the crème frâiche.
Step 5 Return the chicken to the dish and push down so the chicken is mostly covered. Transfer to the oven uncovered for 50 mins – 1 hour until the chicken is browned, comes away from the bone easily and the liquid has reduced a little.
Step 6 Season to taste and serve with creamy mashed potato and green veg.
