In one word, delicious! I love chicken with tarragon and this recipe has so many other delightful flavors too. I do not like honey so replaced it with a little extra brown sugar and I used fresh garlic instead of the powdered variety. We all had seconds and at the end of the meal there was not a crumb left. Very good!

I love the look of the countryside chicken. I'm definitely going to make it. I do like chicken cooked in white wine and I love the fact that there are nuts in here too. This must be lovely with the sauce it makes.Eaten with rice to sop up all the sauce. Yummy! The picture shows it with noodles though, I think that is also a good alternative.
