drop in temperature calls for a little bit of indulging

26 Jan

So after a very busy day, another hold up on the train.. taking almost two hours to get to work again, the day started out in a similar way as it ended.. exhausting. After finally getting home, freezing and tired, I had a look in the fridge. One pack of chicken and one courgette. So I thought of  Tarragon Chicken. Most people don’t use tarragon, but I discovered it again after coming over to London. It has a strong, but distinct taste. So,this dish is dedicated to my hubby! If you want to give him heaven.. give him good food.. it makes him really happy 🙂 He loves cream, but unfortunately he is lactose intolerant, so I use soya cream. I have made this dish once, and my hubby fell in love with it – and oh how critical he is when it comes to food and cooking. So, I am sure if he loves it, you most definitely will! If you aren’t lactose intolerant.. do use cream!! The real thing is always better!! So this is fairly quick and you make it in one pan… less dishes = happiness!

Tarragon chicken with white wine & cream

1 pack of chicken, thighs or drumsticks or mixed

1 onion, finely chopped

2 teaspoons of olive oil

2 teaspoons of garlic

3 teaspoons of tarragon

1 wine glass of dry white wine

salt & pepper for seasoning

1 large courgette, chopped in triangles

250 ml cream/soya cream

Heat a deep non-stick pan with one teaspoon of olive oil and one teaspoon of garlic and two teaspoons of tarragon.Fry the onion with the courgette until glassy, but still firm. Season slightly with salt. Remove from the pan.

Now add the remaining garlic,olive oil and tarragon and add the chicken to the pan to brown. Add the white wine and the onion & courgette mix. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the cream and simmer, with lid on for 30 minutes. Remove lid and simmer for 10 minutes. This dish has a very mild, but tasty flavour. Serve with fluffy jasmine/ basmati rice or linguine. Whatever your taste buds desire!!
