Chicken Fricassee

This chicken fricassée recipe is a summer favourite of ours, full of fresh vegetables and fragrant with an abundance of herbs. We love the aniseed hint the tarragon brings, but you can use any herbs you have lying about in the fridge. Using drumstick fillets means you get a richer flavour and the chicken doesn't dry out easily (plus, you don't have to fiddle around with bones). Serve with crusty bread, rice or a creamy mashed potato for something comforting and indulgent in equal measure.
