Pink champagne chicken in a mixed mushroom sauce

Pink champagne chicken in a mixed mushroom sauce_64919Serves: 2


  • 2 skinless Red tractor chicken breast fillets
  • 300ml pink champagne
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 200g mushroom selection, cleaned, with any large mushrooms halved
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh 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. If using pink champagne this will give your chicken a pink hue.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the mushrooms for 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden.
  3. Strain the chicken breasts, reserving the liquor, and keep warm. Add the reserved liquor to the mushrooms and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat and stir in the cream and tarragon. Simmer gently for 2 minutes, until the sauce has thickened slightly. Season to taste.

To serve: Halve the chicken breasts and pour over the mushroom sauce. Serve with baby courgettes and roasted new potatoes.
