Chicken with White Wine, Mushrooms and Tarragon

Chicken with White Wine, Mushrooms and Tarragon

It's that time of the year to start using the Crock Pot. I like to have a meal ready when my son come's back from the arena. This recipe takes a bit of time to prepare but it is worth the efforts. If you work I would not prepare this recipe during the week. This recipe uses white wine and I have read that you should use a good wine that will like to drink with your meal. If you don't drink wine I would substitute the wine for chicken broth. For garnish it is suggested to serve with fresh Tarragon. Some of you may not like Tarragon which has a gentle combination of licorice and basil taste. Just leave it out. I find that it complements well the dish with the earthy mushroom sauce. This meal can be prepare one day ahead. The flavors will develop overnight.

  11. This looks wonderful. I grow tarragon in herb pots and it manages to make it through the winter when I bring it indoors, so I have fresh tarragon all year. This looks like a perfect use for it, thanks for the recipe. Love the crockpot...it's like having a personal chef cook for you when you are out.
