500g (4) Chicken Breast Fillets 300ml Champagne or sparkling dry white wine, 1 tsp olive oil 150g of a selection of Wild Mushrooms, (cleaned and halved) 2 tbsp Half Fat Crème Frafche 1 tbsp chopped tarragon Salt and freshly ground black pepper.

(1) Place the chicken breasts in a single layer in a large saucepan. Pour over the champagne or sparkling wine and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken breasts are thoroughly cooked.

(2) Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the mushrooms for 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden. Strain the chicken breasts, reserving the liquor, and keep warm. Add the reserved liquor to the mushrooms and allow to bubble for 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat and stir in the crème fraiche and tarragon. Simmer gently for 2 minutes, until the sauce has thickened slightly. Season to taste.
