More at www.cookschool.org METHOD: Pre-heat oven to 200C. Cut chicken into four pieces, splitting legs into thigh and drumstick and cutting breast in two. Heat a saute pan with the oil then add butter. Once foaming, add the seasoned chicken. Saute over a reasonably high heat, turning and allowing to become golden. Add mushrooms and allow to colour before covering with a lid and baking for 15-20 minutes. Remove chicken and place to one side, pour off any excess fat. Place pan back on hob, pour in the wine and bring to the boil. Reduce by 3/4 then add stock and reduce by 1/2. Add cream, simmer and cook for a few minutes until you get a loose sauce consistency. Season and finish sauce with a squeeze of lemon juice to enrich flavour. Strain sauce for a smooth texture, add chicken and mushrooms and finish with tarragon.
