Creamy Tarragon Chicken with Mushrooms and Chevre

"I made this for especially for my husband- just a little something to tease his tastebuds on a romantic night. It's so easy to make too- just cook it up in the pan, no bother at all."

Ready In:




  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large saute pan until the butter melts then add chicken and cook until browned.
  • Add the mushrooms, shallots and tarragon and cook until the mushrooms become tender and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Add the wine and mustard to the pan and stir until blended, then reduce to low, cover and simmer about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove the lid, make a space/well in the center of the pan by moving all the ingredients to the sides and then add the chevre to the center of the pan and mix it with a little cream, stir some, mix in more cream, stir more, etc, until chevre is blended in and cream is incorporated.
  • Mix chicken and mushrooms into cream sauce, check again for seasonings and serve.
  • I served this along side wild rice, but you can do as you like.

    Very good and easy to prepare. Even our three year old cleaned his plate. Thanks Sue L for a great recipe!

    Never tried chevre cheese or tarragon before, but I added a spreadable type of chevre and pretty much kept the recipe as instructed. SUPERB!Will try to serve with fettucine next time.

    This was very simple yet very very tasty! I used light sour cream instead of the cream and it turned out just fine.

    Easy to make and good flavor...enjoyed it a great deal and I'm not a huge fan of goat cheese. I used the basil and garlic chevre. I also didn't have white wine and substituted some chicken stock and lemon juice. I used much more chicken stock than the recipe called for (about 3/4 cup) and used more dijon mustard as well to make enough sauce. I also used portabello slices and it worked out fine as well. Overall, a very tasty dish ... even for just during the week...easy to make and not a lot of time standing and preparing! Would make again for sure!
