MasterBLOGchef Week 5 - Crispy skin tarragon chicken with beans

 This is Week5

Loving this challenge 
and i am realising, thats its not necessarily the cook.. 
Its just the unexplained incorrect receipies ive followed, because so far its all good!!!

WEEK 3 Is:

crispy skin tarragon chicken with beans 

  • 80g unsalted butter, softened
  •  1 tablespoon chopped tarragon leaves
  •  2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  •  sea salt and cracked black pepper
  •  4 x 240g chicken breast with part wing bone, skin on (I used 5)
  •  150g green beans, trimmed
  •  100g butter (yellow) beans, trimmed
  •  3 sprigs lemon thyme
  •  1 cup (250ml) hot chicken stock

 Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F). Place the butter, tarragon, lemon rind, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix to combine. Place the butter under the skin of the chicken. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook the chicken skin-side down for 4 minutes or until crispy, turn and cook for a further 2 minutes. Place the beans and lemon thyme in a baking dish and pour over the stock. Top with the chicken, pour over the butter from the pan and bake for 12−15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the beans are tender. Serves 4.

This was totally YUMMY!!!
