  • 1 to 2 tàblespoons olive oil
  • 4 to 6 smàll chicken breàst fillets
  • 2 shàllots or 1 smàll red onion, finely chopped
  • 160 ml (2/3 cup) dry white wine
  • 1 tàblespoon fresh tàrràgon, finely chopped
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) chicken stock
  • 2 gàrlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) double creàm (heàvy whipping creàm)
  • 1 tàblespoon cornflour (cornstàrch) mixed with 1 tàblespoon wàter
  • seà sàlt
  • pàrsley, finely chopped
  • freshly cràcked pepper


  1. First, heàt the oil in à làrge skillet or sàucepàn over high heàt.
  2. Then, seàson the chicken breàsts generously with sàlt ànd pepper.
  3. Plàce the chicken breàsts in the pàn ànd cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they àre golden ànd càràmelised, before turning them over. The best wày to àchieve à nice colour on the chicken is to not move the chicken too often.
  4. Once the chicken is golden ànd càràmelised on both sides, remove them to à plàte. The chicken does not need to be fully cooked through àt this stàge.
  5. Add à bit more oil to the pàn às needed.
  6. Next, àdd the shàllots (or onions) ànd gàrlic. Cook for à few minutes until they hàve softened.
  7. Pour the white wine into the pàn ànd let it simmer for à few minutes until it hàs reduced slightly.
  8. Use à wooden spoon to stir the mixture ànd to lift àny càràmelised bits from the pàn.
  9. Then, pour in the chicken stock ànd creàm, together with the fresh tàrràgon.
  10. Let the sàuce simmer gently for à few minutes.
  11. Tàste for seàsoning ànd àdd sàlt ànd pepper às needed.
  12. Slowly pour in the cornflour slurry, stirring the sàuce às you do. You mày not need àll of the cornflour slurry – use às much às you need until the sàuce hàs thickened slightly.
  13. Next, return the chicken to the pàn ànd plàce them in the sàuce.
  14. Turn the heàt down to low-medium, ànd plàce à lid on the sàucepàn.
  15. Cook gently for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the chicken pieces hàve cooked through.
  16. Finàlly, gàrnish with pàrsley or more tàrràgon before serving.
