Tarragon & Leek Chicken

Jazz up your usual chicken recipe with our creamy tarragon and leek main. Begin by grilling the chicken with a sprinkling of our chicken seasoning mix, a savory blend of smoky paprika, peppery parsley and onion. To make the sauce, simply add tangy tarragon and hot vegetable stock after cooking the leeks – the subtle garlicky flavour from the leeks pairs beautifully with the lemony notes of the tarragon. The addition of single cream turns creates a velvety sauce that’s just perfect when spooned over the chicken and a dollop of freshly made mashed potatoes.

  • Melt the butter in a large frying pan and fry the leeks for 5-6 minutes, turning occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, grill the chicken for 10 minutes under a high heat, turning often. Add the Tarragon and stock to the leeks. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle the Perfect Shake Chicken Herb & Spice Blend over the chicken and cook for a further 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix the cornflour with 2 tbs water and add to the pan with the cream. Bring back to the boil, stirring. Season to taste. Serve with mashed potatoes.
