Creamy Mustard & Tarragon Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

A French inspired dish I found in a back issue of BBC Good Food magazine. The recipe uses reduced fat crème fraîche but if you can't get that just use the full fat variety.

*Reviewed during ZWT5 for the CHow Hounds France visit* WOnderful chicken dish and easy too :) I love quick and simple recipes. THis had a wonderful flavour and the creme fraiche made a lovely rich, smoothe sauce. Sorry I didn't get a pic tonight due to flat camera batteries
