  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil in an ovenproof pan. Season the chicken breasts, then brown for 1 min on each side. Remove from the pan, then set aside.

  2. Add the crème fraîche, mustards and tarragon to the pan, stirring to combine everything. Bring to a simmer, then return the chicken to the pan, spooning some of the sauce over the fillets. Lift into the oven, then bake for 20 mins until the chicken is cooked through and sauce bubbling. Great with green beans and rice.

Very quick, easy mid week meal. I prefer to cook on the hob. If you like this you should try 'Summer in Winter' chicken - also quick, easy and delic!

I dont like creamy dishes, but I am trying to expand my repetoire. This was pleasant, but I wont make it again. My hubby prefers his chicken spicy and sticky, so this one wont make it to our favourites.

I made this last night but as I'm veggie I made it with quorn filets rather than chicken and it was delicious. Served them with rice and peas as no beans - will definitely make again.

Very good midweek supper. Quick to make and a good end result, although it did take a little longer than the recipe specified. Served with roasted baby new potatoes, carrots and green beans.

Great recipe. I served this dish with rice but next time I will do roasted potatoes instead. I think it is a better combination.
