Trauts Devon, England, UK

Serves: 2 

  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium onion what ever you have I have used both white and red both work really well
  • 2 – 3 Cloves of garlic ( depending on size of cloves and love of garlic!)
  • 1 - 2 Chicken breasts
  • 150 ml Chicken stock (I use stock cubes as i always have them in the cupboard!)
  • 150ml White wine ( Any works, but do remember to test it first! ;-)
  • 100ml Double Cream
  • Bunch of fresh tarragon (Dried is fine instead if you have it 1 Tsp)
