A Very French Comfort Food
Poulet à l'estragon (tarragon chicken) is standard fare on bistro menus in France; it's one of those dishes that combines basic ingredients you may never have considered putting together—yet makes total sense. Here, it's sweet, anise-like tarragon, cream and falling-off-the-bone chicken; the delicate herb stands up surprisingly well to the other flavors. After six hours in the slow cooker, you'll have the most tender meat and a luxurious sauce—with you barely having done a thing.
