Ingredients

Chicken:
2 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, thighs or combination of both, cut into chunks
Coarse salt and pepper
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
2 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, chopped
1 carrots, chopped into fine dice
1 rounded teaspoon sugar
12 crimini (baby bellas) mushrooms, sliced or chopped
4 to 5 sprigs fresh tarragon, leaves chopped, about 2 tablespoons
Handful flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
1 1/3 cups good dry red wine, such as Burgundy
1 (15-ounce) can chunky style crushed tomatoes or diced tomatoes in puree

Noodles:
3/4 pound extra-wide egg noodles
2 tablespoons butter, cut into bits
2 sprigs fresh tarragon, leaves chopped, about 1 tablespoon
Handful flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped, about 2 tablespoons
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the noodles.


Season chicken generously with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium high heat brown pieces of chicken in oil for 2 or 3 minutes on each side and remove to a plate.


Return pan to stove and reduce heat to medium. Add butter to the pan and shallots, carrots and mushrooms. Saute 3 to 5 minutes until mushrooms darken and carrot bits are fork tender. Add sugar, tarragon and parsley and stir. Add wine and reduce liquid for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes to your sauce and stir to combine. Add chicken back to the pan and simmer chicken in sauce for 6 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.


Meanwhile, cook the noodles until just tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl. Toss the noodles with butter, tarragon, parsley, and season with salt and pepper.


Serve chicken with buttered egg noodles tossed with fresh herbs.

Notes

I have made this dish MANY times with rave reviews from family and friends. This is another one of Rachel's dishes that gets better if it simmers another 20 minutes on the stove. With a small side salad and some crusty french bread this meal is definitely worth a try.
