    About this recipe: I had no idea what to make for dinner one night, and had become enamoured with southern French style cooking, so I just invented this on the fly and it has become a favourite!! I prefer to use a deep-sided, large frypan on the stove - I've not tried using an electric frypan for this recipe, but feel free to experiment and see if it works!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tsp (10ml) olive oil
    • 1 tsp minced garlic (or 1 clove fresh garlic, crushed)
    • half an onion chopped (optional)
    • 500g chicken, diced
    • 200g diced smoked bacon (optional)
    • 500g mushrooms, sliced
    • 300ml thickened cream
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) dry white cooking wine
    • 1-2 tsp french/dijon mustard
    • small amount of Tarragon (use sparingly, is highly flavoured)
    • 2 cups rice, cooked and drained
    • salt/pepper to taste

    Directions
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a large frypan, heat 2 tsp olive oil and add garlic and (optional) onion; saute until clear. Add chicken and (optional) bacon; stir 2 minutes or until chicken is browned then add mushrooms and stir until tender.
    2. Add cream and white wine, simmer 2 minutes, stir in mustard. Add Tarragon, salt and pepper to taste.
    3. Carefully add rice, until mixture is of a thick, but still easily mixable, consistency.
    4. Serve hot and enjoy. These proportions serve four, but by adding more rice or mushrooms, can extend to serve six.
