This is one version of a classic French recipe that I have adapted for quick and easy preparation. You may wish to adjust the quantity of tarragon to taste.
Original recipe makes 4 servings
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons dried tarragon
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup white wine
- In a small bowl, blend Dijon mustard and honey. Mix in the tarragon, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in the skillet, and brush on both sides with the Dijon mustard mixture. Pour 1/4 cup wine around the chicken. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 10 minutes, until liquid is reduced.
- Pour another 1/4 cup wine around the chicken, and continue to cook about 5 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove from heat, reserving remaining liquid.
- Mix remaining wine into the skillet. Increase heat to medium, and scrape up browned bits. Cook and stir until liquid is reduced by about 1/3. Serve as a sauce over the chicken.
