Okay, so now the whole entire family wants to get involved with cooking! (If you haven’t seen my first two videos of “recipes so easy a kid can make it” look here and here). Hey, I’m good with that! I’m all for other people in my house cooking. This time, Greg, my lovely husband decided to cook some tarragon mustard chicken in the slow cooker. It is a super easy recipe that takes less than 5 minutes to get going.
We all devoured this chicken and sauce. We served ours over mashed potatoes. It was so delicious! I know your family will love it too. Make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel (I think I’m up to about 18 subscribers now!)Print

I enjoy cooking very much. I found this recipe as I often randomly searching for something to make. I came across this. I am not one to try substitutions of an item but sometimes you have to. I did not have tarragon so I used basil in the same recommended amount. Of course I did not have tapioca so I substituted corn starch.
I decided to double the sauce as I like to bathe my noodles with it. Be careful when adding lemon juice so add slowly to attain your preference un the taste of the sauce.
All in all quite tasty. I will continue on the site in hopes of finding another or grouping of recipes to make.

sorry to hear it. My newer recipes do contain nutrition info…it’s so hard to go back and update hundreds of recipes

Great dish! I made this exactly as the recipe stated with the exception of adding a cup of baby carrots and a diced shallot. My wife loved it and we will do it again! Thanks
oh yum! great idea. Love shallots.

Love all of your recipes! The video is great, too 🙂
This was so good. I only had chicken breasts so cooked for 3.5 hours on low.

Trying this tonight!
andrea, you can. but they don't turn out as well. they get dry and tough. only cook on low for 2-4 hours. Here's my post on why: http://www.lds.org/liahona/2012/06/gathering-in-a-unity-of-the-faith?lang=eng&query=young+single+adult

Most of your chicken recipes call for thighs. Can I use skinless, boneless breasts instead?

This was great!!
your crock pot cashew chicken was THE BEST! My husband said it was an AWESOME dinner! Thanks!
I'm growing some lovely tarragon in a pot on the deck. I certainly will be trying this very soon. 🙂
