This recipe came from Pinch on nom, this is a classic French dish usually used ingredients only the French can get away with, so we have adapted things to make it easier to get our hands on during lockdown.


  • 2tbsp Hickory Smoked Rapeseed Oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 8 chicken thighs (skin and visible fat removed) or just use chicken pieces.
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 plum tomatoes peeled and deseeded (or just use plum tomatoes from a tin and chop)
  • 1/2 tsp of Dijon mustard
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 75g low fat cream cheese
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon (or dried if you don't have fresh)
  • Steamed greens, garlic fries, rice to accompany your dish.


  1. Add your Hickory smoked oil to a heavy based saucepan and lid.  Add the chicken thighs and brown for 2-3 mins on each side, then remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Reduce the heat, add the onion, garlic, cook for 3 mins, then add tomatoes and mustard, cook for 1 min.
  3. pour in stock, white wine, stir well and bring to a simmer.  Return the chicken pieces to the pan and cover with lid, cook over a low heat for 25-30 mins or until the juices of the thighs run clear.
  4. Remove the chicken from the pan, cover with foil and keep warm.
  5. Turn the heat up and bring the sauce to the boil for 6-8 mins or until the sauce has thickened and reduced. Stir in the cream cheese and chopped tarragon, then return the chicken to the pan and warm through.
  6. Serve with steamed veg, rice or potatoes. I added Garlic Potatoes using our Garlic Infused Oil!
