Made this tonight for two with the measurements halved and it worked really well and came out looking exactly like the photo. I was using regular potatoes, so I quartered them and that seemed to take care of the problem others here were having with them. Added the beans for the last 15-20 mins, and they were good - cooked but still crunchy. I agree that the tarragon is quite strong and not really necessary - there are enough flavours going on anyway. A really easy but impressive looking meal - will make again.

Sauce was far too sweet and the mustard was over powering!!! Didn't like the tarragon flavour and the potatoes were still hard after 60mins cooking. Would not recommend!

Will make it again, super easy and quick to prepare and my toddler ate the lot.

Beans overcooked vs chicken undercooked. I think there are better ways to enjoy chicken.

Really good and v. easy. Used chicken breasts (just put them in half an hour before the potatoes were done) and put the green beans in about 20 mins before the end. Very tasty. One small point - I cooked the potatoes for around an hour altogether and still thought they could have had another 15 mins or so when I served them..

Made this last night and it was so simple and delicious! Am already planning when to next make it and what I'll add/change next time. Personally, there was too much honey making it too sweet for my taste - so next time I'll use half the amount. Also planning on trying it with some onion and mushrooms.

Delicious recipe - the chicken was succulent and all the flavours complimented each other very nicely.

Definately worth cooking the beans seperately. A nice easy family dinner. Will cook this one again and again

really nice sauce. couldn't get hold of any creme fraiche so used greek yoghurt instead, which made the consistency thinner than i would like but was a good substitute. left out the potatoes and served with mash and peas instead.

Sticky and sweet - you could do this without the chicken as a side dish too.
