When I roast a whole chicken, my favorite ingredients to add while roasting are a herb butter (usually parsley or tarragon) and lemons. So this recipe encompasses all those flavors – plus butter and cream! If you're following a low-carb-high-fat diet – this dish is particularly good for you!

How to Make Lemon Tarragon Chicken

Add butter and a little oil to a skillet and place over a medium-high heat. When melted and sizzling, add some chicken breast chunks (or strips, if you prefer). Sauté until the chicken is cooked through, turning regularly.

Next, add some heavy cream to the pan and let it bubble up. Reduce the heat and let it simmer and reduce for five minutes.

Finally, add some lemon juice (check out my new lemon squeezer!!!), chopped fresh tarragon, and then salt and pepper to season.

At this point you could also add a pinch of ground turmeric if you prefer the sauce to have a warmer yellow color.
