There had been suggestions that the 24-year-old wasn't seeing eye to eye with coach Clarence Seedorf but a masterful performance against Chievo has silenced the doubters.
The win helped further ease the pressure on Seedorf following up on a magnificent away win at Fiorentina.
In a transcendent outing, Taarabt had 87 touches of the ball and completed 55 passes, making him the most effective player on the pitch.
Taarabt had one shot well saved by Chievo goalkeeper Michael Agazzi and saw another charged down with a suspicion of handball.
Chievo's defence struggled to deal with Taarabt's pace and creativity and he played a full 90 minutes, taking the deserved applause of the fans at the final whistle.
There are reports that Milan are attempting to negotiate a permanent deal at the end of the season and Taarabt has made no secret of his desire to stay.
