Directions

  1. In a small bowl, blend Dijon mustard and honey. Mix in the tarragon, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in the skillet, and brush on both sides with the Dijon mustard mixture. Pour 1/4 cup wine around the chicken. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 10 minutes, until liquid is reduced.
  3. Pour another 1/4 cup wine around the chicken, and continue to cook about 5 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove from heat, reserving remaining liquid.
  4. Mix remaining wine into the skillet. Increase heat to medium, and scrape up browned bits. Cook and stir until liquid is reduced by about 1/3. Serve as a sauce over the chicken.

this was VERY easy to make and quick to put together with simple ingredients. it was very tasty and the sauce was great. i would change the quantities of spices, there was a little too much tarragon to my taste.

I might call this "Poached Chicken with Tarragon". The chicken should be seasoned and browned and removed. The pan should then be deglazed with the wine and herbs (and a lot less tarragon!) Perhaps add a bit of butter to emulsify the sauce and then gently add the chicken back to heat and finish at a very low heat.

This chicken is delicious....not everyone has a taste for tarragon, but my four children, husband and I love it.

Fabulous. It was amazingly tender. I'll probably use a little less tarragon next time, but regardless, we all loved it.

As other readers said, this was truly easy and very good. Rather than use the tarragon which several said they didn't care about, I used fresh rosemary from my garden. Try it, you'll like it!

This was a suprising thumbs up from my picky hubby! I did omit the tarragon and used chicken broth instead of white wine. It was so quick and yummy! Next time I will double up on the herb mustard mix and broth, just to have more sauce.

Didn't love it, might be better if the chicken was browned first instead of just being "poached" in wine. Probably won't try this one again.

Nothing better with chicken, than mustard and delicious herbs. I was very impressed, huge chicken lover here.
