    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    This delicious chicken and easy creamy tarragon wine sauce cook right on the stove top. People will think you went to culinary school to learn how to make something this good! Do not worry about the cream in here. It is only 1/4 cup divided between 6 people. Just enough to give you that smooth creaminess you have been craving! Oh MY this is so good! We love this over some simple white or brown rice with a green salad on the side. Oh and the rest of that bottle of wine! hehee Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Set aside remaining flour.
    2. 2
      Heat 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in large skillet and brown chicken on both sides. Remove chicken and keep warm.
    3. 3
      Saute onion in same skillet until it begins to become clear.
    4. 4
      Add wine and cook until liquid is almost evaporated, stirring to loosen browned bits (deglaze) on bottom of skillet. Watch closely- this happens fast!
    5. 5
      Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in reserved flour until it becomes a thick paste.
    6. 6
      Add tarragon, chicken broth and the cooked chicken. Cover and cook until tender.
    7. 7
      Place chicken on a warm platter.
    8. 8
      Add remaining butter and heavy cream to the liquid that is in the skillet and heat through.
    9. 9
      Pour sauce over the chicken and garnish with a little more tarragon or some chopped fresh parsley or green onion if desired.

      So good! My DS took one bite and was in heaven. I added quite a bit of additional chicken broth, but no worries! Made for ZWT 5.

      This was delicious!!! It was easy to make. I added more tarragon because I really like it. I usually have the ingredients on hand, except for the cream. I used 2 chicken thighs instead of breasts. I kept the other ingredients the same. I had this with Artichoke Mashed Potatoes which made a great dinner. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe Mama!! Made for the March 2008 Bevy Tag game.

      We loved this recipe!!!! I knew we would :) I made 3 breasts and kept the amounts of the rest of the ingredients the same. The sauce did start to disappear quickly over the heat so I just removed it from the heat and allowed the heated pan to cook it. Fabulous! I used tarragon out of my garden and chenin blanc for the white wine. I would make this again with no hesitation!
