This is a classic French chicken dish. We actually had something quite similar when we were in France several years ago and this recipe was inspired from that dish. This recipe is so easy and honestly fabulous. Another positive… you can pop it in the slow cooker and enjoy it when you’re ready.
1 c of all purpose flour
1 tsp of salt
1 lb of chicken (I used breasts)
2 tbl of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
2 tbl olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 c of white wine
1 c of chicken stock
6-8 sprigs of tarragon
Combine the flour and salt in a ziploc baggie. Add the chicken and shake to cover. Meanwhile, heat you sauté pan over medium heat with the butter and olive oil. Add chicken to brown on each side for a total of 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate with paper towel to drain. Then place on the bottom of the slow cooker.
Set the sauté pan over medium to high heat and add the onion and 2 tbl of flour. Saute, stirring, for about 10 minutes or until browned. Add the white wine. Deglaze the pan by scraping up the brown bits. Add the stock and cook for 15 minutes. The sauce should be fairly thick. Pour the sauce over the chicken and add lay the sprigs of tarragon on top. Cover and cook on low for 3-5 hours.
