Top it off - Tarragon Sauce

Tarragon is the perfect partner for chicken. This is a simple tarragon sauce to serve with fillets, or roasted chicken or game.


2 thick slices ciabatta bread, crusts removed (about 90g).

1 tbsp red wine vinegar.

2 bunches tarragon, chopped.

1/2 clove garlic, crushed.

1 tbsp capers.

3-4 anchovies, chopped.

Cracked pepper.

Extra virgin olive oil (about 1/4 cup).


Break the bread into very small pieces and place in a bowl. Use your hand to sprinkle a little water over it until just moist. Sprinkle over the vinegar and leave for 20 minutes.

Add the tarragon, garlic, capers, anchovies, pepper and enough olive oil to make a paste. Spoon the mixture onto hot chicken and serve.
