Creamy Mustard & Tarragon Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

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.


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat the oil in an ovenproof pan.
  3. Season the chicken breasts, then brown for 1 min on each side. Remove from the pan, then set aside.
  4. Add the crème fraîche, mustards and tarragon to the pan, stirring to combine everything.
  5. Bring to a simmer, then return the chicken to the pan, spooning some of the sauce over the fillets.
  6. Lift into the oven, then bake for 20 mins until the chicken is cooked through and sauce bubbling.
  7. Great with green beans and rice.

*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

This was very tasty. I added a small shallot to the sauce. I will definately make this again sometime. Made for ZWT5.
