Chicken Braised w Tarragon, Witlof & Leeks

The weather at the weekend was cold and overcast and I didn’t much feel like venturing outside. So in true Miss Foodie fashion I decided to cook! I had a whole, organic chicken in the fridge; you of course think roast chicken instantly, but no, I wanted to do something different, well rather eat something different.
