YUMS! Easy, delicious and requires few ingredients. Husband raved and now wants this often. I just used chicken thighs and breasts, mixed it all up and dumped it into a roasting pan. Making the sauce was easy. Delicious, tender, juicy and uncomplicated. Served with a spinach and apple salad. Definitely one to make again.

- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh tarragon
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 1 3 1/2- to 4-pound chicken, cut into pieces
- 1 12-ounce package egg noodles
- 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
- 3/4 cup dry white wine
- Heat oven to 400° F.
In a large bowl, combine the mustard, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of the oil, the garlic, tarragon, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Place the chicken in a roasting pan and roast until cooked through, about 45 minutes.
During the last 15 minutes of roasting, cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain and return to the pot. Add the parsley and the remaining oil and toss to coat.
Transfer the chicken to individual plates. Place the pan containing the drippings over medium-high heat. Add the wine and cook, stirring and scraping the bits from the bottom of the pan, until the wine reduces slightly, about 5 minutes.
Divide the noodles among the plates and spoon the sauce over the top.
