When I think tarragon, I think Chicken dishes, then egg/omelet ones. Try searching for Chicken Tarragon...or Tarragon Chicken...

Have Fun!

Yep, definitely chicken, and pork too

Also, for something different, a good, grilled steak is yummy when topped with a tarragon/cream sauce.

Add see, my first thought is Salmon.

I love the combo of grapefruit and tarragon, makes a real zippy gastrique, or sorbet. Also plays well with kiwi.

For simple sauces, it goes anywhere you would use fine herbs, but depending on what kind of Tarragon. Spanish tends to be spicy.

Makes great compound butters for seafood too.

I have a recipe for a tarragon sauce to go over poached salmon, made with mayo, white wine vinegar, tarragon and salt (there might be more - that's all I can remember). PM me if you want the recipe and I'll post it.

My two favorite uses for tarragon is 1) stuffed into the cavity of a whole roasting chicken or used in a pan sauce for chicken breasts, & 2) chopped into mayonnaise along with a dash of tarragon vinegar & some minced garlic to accompany whole boiled chilled lobster.

What Breezy wrote reminds me - we've used tarragon when making wine-butt chicken. Put some tarragon in the can and under the breast skin before grilling.

Marinate some chicken breasts that have been sliced into strips in a combination chicken broth, white wine, and fresh tarragon. About 4 hours should do it.

Saute chicken, saute mushrooms, reduce some chicken stock with a few more sprigs of fresh tarragon a bit then thicken with a slurry, add back chicken and mushrooms (of course, salt and pepper accordingly), toss in your favorite pasta.
