  • Hot tarragon potatoes with a punchy, creamy dressing spiked with a dollop of horseradish. Tarragon goes beautifully with any chicken dish. Think roast, stuffed, or even poached chicken breasts.

    These tarragon potatoes have been triple-tested by Essentials magazine. Like traditional roast potatoes, these spuds have plenty of crunch plus an added boost of flavour and a delicious dressing. For added zesty flavour, try sprinkling over the zest of an unwaxed lemon just before serving. Serving a fish dish? You could switch the tarragon with fresh dill and a couple of spoonfuls of capers.


    • 1kg new potatoes
    • 4tbsp olive oil
    • Small bunch tarragon, chopped
    • For the dressing
    • 2tbsp EPC lazy horseradish
    • 100ml sour cream
    • 100ml half-fat crème fraîche
    • 2 spring onions, sliced


    • Heat the oven to Mark 6/200°C. Put the potatoes into a roasting tin, drizzle with oil and season. Roast for 45–50 mins, turning occasionally, until golden brown and tender. Sprinkle with chopped tarragon.

    • Mix all dressing ingredients. Thin with water to give consistency of double cream. Drizzle over potatoes.
