I have been making this recipe for several years now, and everyone loves it. I never add the beans, they shrivel up, so if you are going to then do it nearer the end. I don't always add potatoes either, because we love the dish with proper roast potatoes. But if I do add the pots, then I par boil them first. Everything else I keep to the recipe, the fresh tarragon really makes it.

Tasty, easy recipe. I browned the chicken before baking. My sauce was a little runny but nonetheless it was yummy!

Luscious. I used skinless chicken breasts and cut them in half. Parboiled my pots for 5 mins. Doubled the sauce ( the best bit). Used low fat creme fraiche. Used only 1tbsp of honey for 2 v large chicken breasts. Reduced overall oven time to 45 mins. Fab. Plate lickingly good!

Potatoes really need to be the tiny baby size for the timings to work, but this is a very tasty dish, so easy to make and is a great one pot to put on the table.

Made this for the meat eating members of family. I used 8 chicken cutlets no skin, but bone in. I omitted the honey, and used cream instead of cream fraishe. I doubled the cream, garlic and stock, but kept the mustard the same. Added dried tarragon as that is what I had. I didn`t add beans, but added 1 red onion, quartered, and I seared the chicken first then added the red onion and chopped garlic, then added potatoes and liquid. Family loved it, a great easy dish for beginner cooks. I am sure this will be a well used recipe.

Quick, easy, cheap and tasty meal. I forgot to put the tarragon on but i dont think it tasted like it was missing something. Made double the sauce as suggested, it was really very delicious so well worth a try

Absolutely delicious. I used frozen sugar snap peas, and par boiled the potatoes first. A real winner!

So daft question but I used a chicken oxo to make the stock with boiling water then let it cook abit before adding the creams fraiche and other ingredients has anyone else done it like this or should I have used fresh chicken stock?
