Tarragon Chicken

Low Carb Dinner Recipes and Ideas
Recipe by Nicky
This is a very easy low carb chicken dish to make. Serve with a side of your favourite leafy greens.


6 chicken thigh fillets (season with salt and pepper)
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
8 oz mushrooms, chopped
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup thickened cream
2 tbsp tarragon, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste


Melt the butter in a large skillet and sauté the chicken thighs, until browned.
Set the chicken aside. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook gently for about 2 minutes or until the onion begins to soften.
Increase the heat and stir in the mushrooms. Stir-fry for about 4-5 minutes or until the mushrooms begin to colour and give off their liquid.
Pour in the wine. Bring to a quick boil then reduce the heat slightly and simmer until most of the wine has evaporated. Add the cream and cook just until incorporated. Replace the chicken in the pan and simmer until the sauce thickens. Stir in the tarragon and season to taste.
Arrange the chicken on a serving plate and pour the sauce over. Delish!
