Step 1

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the minced onion, vinegar and tarragon. Simmer, stirring constantly, until liquid has evaporated. Add mushrooms and 4 Tbsp. butter. Cook until lightly browned and pour in 1/3 cup cream. Bring to a boil. Stir a small amount into the egg yolks, whisking rapidly to incorporate. Return the mixture to saucepan. Cook, whisking constantly, until it begins to thicken. Whisk in remaining cream or add more to thicken. Add lemon juice and cayenne to taste.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F and place chicken in ungreased baking pan, coat each piece with remaining butter. Sprinkle onion, garlic salt, and paprika over chicken, and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

Pour sauce over cooked chicken and serve with asparagus, carrots and fresh kiwi.
