  1. Step 1

    Heat a casserole pan over medium-high heat and spray with olive oil spray. Season the chicken and add to the pan, skin-side down. Cook for 2-3 mins each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Add the leek, mushroom and bacon to the pan and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the leek is tender. Add mustard and stir to combine. Add the stock and cream and stir to combine.
  3. Step 3

    Return the chicken to the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 mins or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in the lemon juice and tarragon. Season to serve.
