Make a presentation statement of this chicken and vegetable dinner recipe by wrapping a 16x2-1/2-inch strip of parchment paper around each individual dish and tying with 100 percent cotton string before baking.
- Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Arrange chicken in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear; set aside.
- Meanwhile, cook the fresh peas, if using, in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water for 2 minutes; drain. For the sauce, in a medium saucepan combine 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and chopped onion. Cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in peas, the 1/3 cup flour, and tarragon. Add chicken broth all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cover and keep warm while preparing cobbler topping.
- For cobbler topping, in a medium mixing bowl stir together the 2 cups flour, shredded carrot, sugar, baking powder, and the 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in milk and the remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter until combined. Place a baked chicken thigh in each of six individual ungreased 10-ounce custard cups, ramekins, or baking dishes. Pour warm sauce over the chicken. Spoon topping over sauce. Place dishes in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake for 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of topping comes out clean. Makes 6 srvings.
