  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • teaspoon Madras curry powder
  • large (about 6 ounces each) or 12 small (about 3 ounces each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  •  Kosher salt
  •  Canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped tarragon plus 1 tablespoon whole tarragon leaves
  •  Freshly ground black pepper

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1583889959623{margin-top: 10px !important;padding-left: 50px !important;}”][vc_column_text]METHOD[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]In a small bowl mix together paprika and curry powder, and sprinkle on both sides of chicken breasts; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Place 2 breasts on large sheet of plastic wrap, cover with more plastic and pound with a mallet until they are about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat with remaining breasts. (Chicken may be wrapped and refrigerated for up to 12 hours.)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Season chicken on both sides with salt. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add enough canola oil to film the bottom of pan. Working in batches, without crowding, place breasts smooth side down and let cook until golden brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Turn and cook for another 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in oven.

Wipe out skillet and return to medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and shallot, and sauté for 30 seconds, swirling pan to coat shallot with butter. Add wine, raise heat to medium-high, and cook until wine is reduced by half, about 1 minute. Add stock, bring to boil, and cook until reduced and slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in chopped tarragon, remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and any juices that have accumulated on baking sheet. Swirl to melt butter, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Arrange chicken on a warmed platter, pour sauce over it, and garnish with whole tarragon leaves.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1584215403674{margin-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”custom” border_width=”3″ accent_color=”#ffffff”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
