Chicken in tarragon sauce


I loved this recipe, I love tarragon and I made other post times ago with fish and tarragon  but this sauce was lovely and yum!

Adapted from my personal cook book collection  and the name  is
"French recipes" by Parragon.









chicken in tarragon sauce
4 servings


ingredients

4 pieces of boneless breast of a
175 g each
salt and pepper
30 g butter
1 tablespoon oil

Tarragon sauce

4 tablespoons dry white wine
150 ml of broth
sprigs of tarragon
2 teaspoons of dried tarragon
300 ml heavy cream


Method

Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.

Melt  butter with oil in a skillet over medium heat. A large pan so they can brown the chicken breasts.
when browned move to a ceramic baking dish or pyrex.
Bring to a preheated oven (180 ° c)
for about 20 minutes or until tender.
Cover the dish with foil and set aside.

For the sauce:
In the same pan that the chicken is gilded (remove excess fat) and place over low medium heat, add wine, always stirring, boil a bit to reduce a little.
Add a bit of broth and tarragon in branches, stir a little and add the cream.

Then dispose the breasts and check the seasoning and sprinkle the chopped tarragon over the sauce.

 Serve the chicken with tarragon sauce.

  2. Aqui estoy! Ya ves, me paso de un blog al otro...Sois muy buenos los dos.
    Y veo has "colgado" la receta. Buenísima. Yo la hacía con Albahaca (Basil) pero con el Estragón debe de estar deliciosa.
    Me encanta ver todo de Chile. Mi abuelo pasó mucho tiempo en Santiago, y fundó el Museo de Bellas Artes, por eso me hace ilusión ver en tus fotos los lugares por donde estuvieron mis abuelos.

    2. si, eso creo y me encantaría visitarlo. Mi abuelo se llamaba Fernando Alvarez de Sotomayor y creó una corriente artistíca a primeros del siglo pasado. Hoy día la Univ. de Talca están haciendo estudios sobre él.A ver cuando viajo para Chile, es una de mis ilusiones. Mientras me conformo con tus fotografias.
