How to make it

  • Place chicken breasts in a dish with a splash of white wine (additional to the ½ bottle we are saving for the sauce) and a squirt of lemon juice
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large pan and add the onions and sugar. Stir on a high heat for 8-10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat and watch for around 20 minutes until onions are soft and brown.
  • Raise heat and add bacon and garlic – stir for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat and add the stilton and 8 sprigs of fresh tarragon while stirring, when the stilton has melted add the wine.
  • Reduce on a medium heat, stirring periodically for 30 minutes.
  • Add cream and the remainder of the tarragon and stir on a medium heat for 30 minutes, do not allow to boil.
  • Grill chicken on an iron skillet if possible, if not pan fry until outside is browned.
  • Add cooked chicken to the sauce and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  • Serve on a bed of fresh ribbon pasta with the basil sprinkled on top.
