Country French Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sondra Beth

Adapted from Rachael Ray - 30 minute meals - A combination of boneless skinless tenderloins or breasts and thighs well lend to a more rustic, "cooked all day" taste. A very comforting meal on a cold day.

I'm not usually a fan of chicken and tomatoes together in a dish, but the addition of red wine really balanced out this dish. It was so quick, easy, delicious AND healthy, no mean feat. I made no changes or tweaks to this recipe and will definitely be making it again.

Saute for 3 to 5 mnutes until mushrooms darken and carrot bits are fork tender. Add tarragon and parsley and stir. Add wine and reduce liquid for 1 or 2 minutes.
