    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Trim any rib meat and fat from the breasts. Cut breasts into 2 pieces, removing strip of cartilage that joins halves.
    2. 2
      Select a pan that will just hold the breasts when they are placed close together.
    3. 3
      Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt and white pepper, arrange them presentation side up.

      Add wine, chicken stock, bay leaf, thyme, and dried tarragon.

      Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the pan you are using, rub butter on it. Place it butter side down on top of chicken mixture.

      Bring liquid to a simmer and reduce the temperature to just below simmering (this is poaching temperature).
    7. 7
      Allow chicken to cook through (about 7 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle). Remove chicken from pan.
    8. 8
      Turn temperature up until remaining liquid is boiling. Allow to reduce for a minute or two.
    9. 9
      Meanwhile mix 1 oz of butter and 1 oz of flour into a paste (this is called beurre manie).
    10. 10
      Once the liquid in the pan has reduced a little, whisk in the beurre manie, and bring back to a boil.
