Creamy Tarragon Chicken with Egg Noodles is a quick weeknight dinner that can feel like so much more. The sherry adds a sophisticated flavor that pairs so nicely with tarragon and the cream gives it that luxurious feeling – like you are really spoiling yourself. Add to this that you can make this multiple ways – on the stovetop or in the pressure cooker – and you have a recipe that you’ll keep coming back to time and time again.
Do make sure you use a sauté pan that is big enough to hold everything. A 4-quart sauté pan is just big enough, but a 5-quart pan (12-inches in diameter) is even better, allowing you to really stir everything together at the end easily. You don’t even need a lid for your skillet or sauté pan because the noodles cook uncovered. Just remember to give it a stir every now and then to make sure the noodles cook evenly and get their time to be completely submerged.
The other trick to this recipe is to make sure you turn the heat off before you add the cheese at the end. The cheese will definitely melt from the heat of all the other ingredients in the pan. Too much heat, however, will make the cheese stringy and gluey.
Everything you need for a complete meal is in this recipe. You even have your peas and carrots too!

Fabulous. Didn’t have egg noodles so I used bow tie pasta. This was so creamy and delicious. Keeper pile again. Thanks Meredith.
Delicious and easy. Impressive enough to serve to company. Clean up was simple too – gotta love one pot meals!
Thanks, Meredith! I love your recipes. They’re well written, easy to follow, and best of all they taste wonderful.
Are there instructions to cook this in a for pressure cooker? I’m not finding them but maybe I need new reading glasses? Thank you.
Right above the recipe name is a tab that says “Stovetop/Oven” or “Pressure Cooker”. Just click on the tab and the recipe will switch out.
I’m going to make this! I would make on the stovetop as recommended but I wanted to ask you what air fryer do you recommend?
Well, we recommend the Blue Jean Chef® Air Fryer Oven of course! But if you would like more info on how to choose an air fryer, check out Meredith’s article on the subject. https://bluejeanchef.com/cooking-school/how-to-choose-an-air-fryer/
