Tarragon and chicken are a marriage made in heaven, especially when combined with garlic and mustard.

I dont know if I did something wrong but I didnt care for this at all. The chicken started out with a wonderful colour and crisp skin and after putting it in with the other ingredients in a covered pot it was no longer crisp. The sauce was good but the veggies somehow together was not the greatest..
