Cook about 10 minutes until golden brown on the skin side. If using skinless breasts, cook around 5 minutes. Turn and cook about 5 minutes longer. Remove the chicken and set aside. Add shallots to skillet and cook briefly. Add tarragon ad wine. Stir to dissolve the brown bits and stir in the water. Return the chicken to the skillet, skin side up, and cover.
