Tarragon chicken

Well it's been a while. Actually it's been a bl**dy long time.

Since I last wrote we've moved house, we've lost two close family members, son no2 has started school, we've had problems with son no1 and my career has become all enveloping ! So, life has just taken over really but now I'm hoping to get back to blogging and posting my recipes again - and honing my rather poor photography skills.

So tonight I made tarragon chicken. Something the Husband absolutely adores but in it's full fat state is rather calorie heavy. Given I'm back on a health kick (and have lost nearly a stone and a half to date) this is important stuff. Obviously for those of you not with a few lbs to lose half fat can be swapped for full fat etc.

serves 2

1 tsp olive oil
2 chicken breasts cut into strips
1 onion chopped
Handful of mushrooms sliced
1-2 cloves of garlic crushed
Splash of chicken stock (I used 1/2 a Knorr chicken stockpot)
2 tbsp half fat creme fraiche
Large handful of chopped fresh tarragon

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and stir fry the chicken until browned
Add the vegetables and cook until soft
Add the stock and creme fraiche, season and reduce the sauce until thickened
Add the tarragon reserving some for finishing the dish

I served this with new potatoes, green beans and broccoli. 
Seasoning to taste
