Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Combine jam, mustard and tarragon in a small saucepan. Heat just enough to melt jam and blend ingredients.

  3. Place chicken pieces in a single layer in a baking dish, just large enough to hold all the chicken. With a pastry brush or a spoon, coat each piece of chicken with jam mixture. Cover baking dish with foil and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until juices run clear.

  4. Spoon extra sauce from baking dish on chicken when serving.

  5. Serve with vegetables of your choice.
