To make this vegetarian, use tofu or another veggie alternative to chicken


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large roasting tin or large, heavy ovenproof frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat the bottom. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and sauté, turning once, for about 20 minutes until browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Drain the pan of all but 1 tablespoon of the fat. Add the onions, garlic and mushrooms and sauté for 2–3 minutes until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tarragon, tomatoes with their juice and edamame. Mix well and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Top with the chicken, transfer to the oven and bake for 20–25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a platter and serve.
