Chicken thighs with tarragon and vegetables papillotes

  • March 2013

The perfect dish if you are watching your waistline! A lovely light dish you can enjoy guilt-free. You only need to add a splash of olive oil inside the papillotte.

Ingredients – Serves 4

Preparation time: 20 min – Cooking time: 20 min

  1. Preheat the oven at 220°C
  2. Peel the carrots and the courgettes. Cut them into sticks (approximately a finger’s width)
  3. Wash the tomatoes and cut them into small cubes.
  4. Place each chicken thigh on parchment paper.
  5. Spread the vegetables over the chicken, and a splash of olive oil.
  6. Sprinkle the shallots, tarragon, a pinch of salt and some ground pepper over the chicken thighs & vegetables.
  7. Fold up the parchment paper to make 4 parcels. Ensure fully sealed.
  8. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes. It is ready!



For an exotic touch, I replace the chicken thighs with 600g of salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces, substitute the olive oil with soya sauce and tarragon with coriander. I also add some ginger.
