Takes: 15 mins to prepare and 30 mins to cook
Serves: 4


15g (1/2oz) dried wild mushrooms
1 tbsp olive oil
15g (1/2oz) butter
4 chicken breasts, skin on
1 large onion, finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
250g (8oz) chestnut mushrooms, sliced
200ml (1/3pt) hot chicken stock
1/2x30g pack fresh tarragon leaves, picked and chopped
200g (7oz) half fat creme fraiche
200g (7oz) fine green beans, trimmed, to serve
250g (8oz) steamed basmati and wild rice, to serve

In a small bowl, soak the dried mushrooms in boiling water for 15 minutes. Strain and save the liquid. Chop the mushrooms and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and butter in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Season the chicken on both sides and then fry for 5 minutes, skin side down. Turn the breasts over and fry for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the onion and fry for 3-4 minutes. Then mix in the chestnut mushrooms and fry for a further 3 minutes. Add the garlic and reserved chopped mushrooms and fry for 1 minute.

Pour in the mushroom soaking liquid and the hot stock and two thirds of the chopped tarragon. Return the browned chicken pieces to the pan. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes
or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the crème fraîche and warm through but don’t boil. Scatter over the rest of the tarragon, and serve with green beans and steamed basmati and wild rice.
