Instead of a big Christmas meal, our family enjoys nibbling on an all-day appetizer buffet. Each year we present tempting new dishes alongside our favorites. This is one of those tried-and-true dishes that's a "must."

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons butter
1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and turn to coat.
In a skillet, brown chicken in butter until no longer pink. In a small saucepan, combine the oranges, marmalade and tarragon; bring to a boil. Pour over chicken; stir gently to coat. Serve warm, with toothpicks.
