Recipe: Creamy Tarragon Chicken


This is a nice dish, that both me and my brother enjoy very much. My brother (17 years old now) has always been fairly anti-alchohol, most likely due to me drinking from a young age and from occasionally seeing his big sister drunk/ hungover. He never liked the taste of booze, buuuut he has now disovered cider. Oh dear. He likes cider now. Well at least he's a proper west country lad! And you can use the 200ml of cider in the recipe, and then drink the rest of the bottle whilst your'e cooking!! Y'know it's funny seeing my little broher turn into an adult- he's learning how to drive now as well. I think it is impressive how quickly he is learning how to drive, but seriously I am not getting in a car with him again until he's fully qualified, i think my life flashed before me a couple of times last time he drove me to work, Lol!
