The instruction how to make Get-ahead tarragon chicken

  1. Place barley in a bowl. Cover with cold water. Set aside for 6 hours or overnight to soak. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 170C. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, in 2 batches, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan over medium heat. Cook the celery, carrot, bacon and shallot, stirring, for 5-6 minutes or until soft. Stir in the garlic for 1 minute or until aromatic. Transfer the vegetable mixture to a large, heavy-based roasting pan. Stir in the potato, barley and bay leaves. Arrange the chicken pieces on top.
  4. Dissolve stock in the boiling water. Add the stock, wine and tarragon to the frying pan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil. Season. Pour over the chicken mixture. Cover the roasting pan tightly with 2 layers of foil. Bake for 1 hour or until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm. Bake the vegetables, covered, for a further 20 minutes or until tender. Serve the chicken and vegetables with bread.
