Poached Chicken With Tarragon

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by AlaskaPam

This is from a 30 year old "garage sale" cookbook that I love called "Fifteen Minute Meals" by Emalee Chapman. The author studied cooking at Maxims in Paris. This simple recipe is delicious!

This is certainly an easy, fast dinner to prepare! It is flavorful, too, because of the fresh tarragon. My cream never thickened, so I put some of the warm cream and shook it up with some flour and added it back in so the sauce would thicken a bit. We served this over rice. Thank you for posting.

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into strips. Bring the broth to a boil and add the chicken breasts. Turn down to a simmer and simmer for 6-8 minutes In a seperate pan boil the cream and tarragon for 4-5 mins to thicken. Add the poached chicken to the sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with extra tarragon. I love this served with rice.
