    Elmotoo's Note:

    For ZWT8, A French Love Affair challenge. I am adapting Chocolatl's Tarragon Chicken to be made in the crock pot. My boneless thighs nearly disintegrated, lol. This would be good over pasta, rice or polenta! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **i increased the amount of flour as I needed to complete recipe **I increased seasonings corresponding to increased flour **I changed the frying chickens to thighs because thighs will be uniform in size & do well with long cooking. **I removed the skin but not necessarily the bone **I did NOT cut back on the liquid because I needed more flour **I changed margarine to butter **I made mushrooms optional ;) **I added an extra garlic clove & minced vs. chopped them

    4. 4

      Add flour to the fat and drippings in the pan.
    8. 8
      Over medium-low heat, whisk in wine/broth until mixture is thick and smooth. (I used a cast iron skillet which gets hot & retains heat so for this step, I just shut it off) You may need more liquid to get a nice sauce.

      Add remaining ingredients.
    11. 11

      Taste wise absolutely delicious, the only issue I had was when I went to add the flour and then add the 1/2 cup of wine I ended up with a thick gluggy paste and 2 cups of stock it was still thick and pasty so put half of it in a bowl and added another cup of water till I had a smooth thick sauce and poured that over the thighs and then added the rest of the ingredients and 4 hours later (which is what I estimated it would take in my crock pot on low) we had the most succulent and flavoursome of chicken dishes, next time I will make sure I have rice to serve it over for that sauce is outstanding and will give basil a try in place of the tarragon as I always feel that basil and tomatoes go so well together. Thank you Elmotoo, made for the Auusie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #81 October 2013.
