Creamy Chicken with Asparagus & Tarragon

Creamy Chicken with Asparagus & Tarragon

The minute I saw this recipe at BBC Goodfood I told myself I will be making one as soon as possible as me and my daughter are huge fans of creamy dishes. This Creamy Chicken with Asparagus & Tarragon is a simple concoction of chicken and asparagus served in a tarragon infused creamy sauce.

Making this is quite simple as well, you just need to sauté them and simmer in chicken stock until cooked. Original recipe serves it with potatoes, I added roasted cauliflower to the equation as I thought it was a good match for this dish as well.

    Cream, eh? We’ve tried yogurt – a little sourish but nice. Here, asparagus is very expensive and it is not easy to get fresh buttons and they’re very expensive too – the ones in cans are not the same. 🙁

    Amazing! Only, it’s difficult to find asparagus in my neighbourhood:)

  3. Delicious dish and taragon is such an underused herb! not sure why but cannot leave a comment for the life of me when looking at your blog in Firefox???

    I make something very similar to this but I don’t use asparagus. What a great idea! Now it’s a complete meal. Will be making this soon!

  5. You can’t go wrong with chicken thighs in general, but you’ve really done them right with this dish. What a great weeknight dinner. Merry Christmas, Raymund!
