This Chicken Chasseur is a very comforting, flavoursome dish that only takes 10 minutes to prepare and then slowly cooks away, filling your home with the most wonderful aromas! It is super easy to make and is a great recipe for busy families that want tasty dinners but with minimal effort. Give it a go!
This is a great family meal to have midweek. When I first cooked it for Dean and he couldn’t believe how much flavour it had and really enjoyed it, more so than I thought he would! It’s a dish that I’ve grown up with that my mum cooked a lot when I was a child. However this one is totally different to hers as she uses a packet mix!
I think using white wine and good quality chicken stock (instead of stock cubes) gives this so much more flavour. That said, I think the key ingredient here is the tarragon. It’s a must – cooking a Chicken Chasseur without it in my opinion would be like making a chicken and ham pie with out the ham! It has to be in there. Tarragon compliments chicken really well so don’t be shy with it.
Even though this might be classed as an autumn/winter dish, I think it’s pretty much an all year-rounder as it’s not too heavy and has great flavours. Ok you may not have it on a blazing hot day but it’s very rare to get a day like this during an English summer anyway!
I’ve all ways had my chicken chasseur with rice as it soaks up all that delicious sauce. What do you have it with? I love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
