Directions

For the biscuits: Combine the butter, sugar, baking powder and salt in an electric stand mixer. Use the paddle attachment and mix until the butter is pea size. Next, add the flour, tarragon and pepper. Then, add the buttermilk and eggs. Mix until incorporated. For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Dredge the chicken in flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In large saute pan or small rondeau, heat the olive oil. Sear the chicken over medium-high heat. Remove when golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes and reserve. Discard the oil and turn the heat down to medium-low. Saute the shallots until blonde, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the carrots, rosemary, spring garlic, pinch of crushed red pepper and pinch of salt. Saute until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken, allow to cook for 2 minutes. Next, add the hot stock, white wine and morels, and bring the liquid to a simmer. Simmer for about 4 minutes. Top with the biscuit mixture in small dollops. Then add peas. Bake until the biscuits are golden, the filling is bubbling and the chicken is tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Top with the tarragon and serve.
