  1. Coat the chicken pieces in flour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saute pan. Brown chicken on all sides in the oil, and remove from pan.
  3. To the oil remaining in the pan, add the onion. Fry lightly for 2 minutes, then add the garlic. Deglaze pan by stirring in the wine, which should lift off the residue of the flour from the bottom of the pan. Add the tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste. Return the chicken to the pan. Cook over low heat for about 45 minutes, or until the chicken is well done.
  4. When ready to serve, thicken the sauce with a cornstarch and water mixture; often this is not necessary as the initial flour coating thickens it naturally. Stir in the sour cream.

Very easy & fragrant chicken recipe. I would use a different white wine tho-I used a sauterne & it didn't lend itself to the subleties of this dish. My picky son asks for this dish frequently!

I just made this again last night. Was horribly disappointed considering I loved it before. I used a Sauvignon Blanc and that was all I could taste in the sauce. Taste testing as I went along, I...

This dish was fantastic! My family loved it, we will have this again and again! The only thing I did different was instead of a dry white wine, I used sherry, it was delicious.

Absolutely loved this recipe. Once the sauce was finished, I added it to the chicken in a slow cooker for several hours and it was delicious!

horriable unedible

I was looking for a recipe to use up some of the Tarragon in my herb garden before it gets too cold. When I saw the review that said this recipe was bland I thought "this might be the one" beca...

this was great. My whole family (5) liked it. The only things I did different is that I used chicken breast cut into strips. Everyting else I did by the recipe.
