Creamy Mustard & Tarragon Chicken


This Creamy Mustard & Tarragon Chicken is my ultimate comfort food. It’s creamy – a must for any comfort food, I’m sure you’ll agree! It also makes great use of my favorite herb: aniseedy French tarragon. Finally, it adds not one but two types of mustard to create a delicious meal in just 30 minutes.

Start by cooking the chicken. To make a creamy sauce, add crème fraîche, mustards and tarragon to the pan and combine. Bring the sauce to a simmer, before returning the chicken to the pan and spooning the sauce over the fillets. Transfer to the oven to finish cooking. I usually serve this with steamed greens and wholegrain rice.

To make Creamy Mustard & Tarragon Chicken, you will need the following ingredients:

My spouse really liked this but they said that the yellow rice doesnt go well and this would be served a lot better with some bow pasta and the cream.

Where can I buy the creme fraiche ?

Letting everyone know now that if you add some lemon juice the flavor increases 10 fold.

Accidently used olive oil instead of sunflower but luckily there wasn't much of a difference I guess.
