This is a very simple recipe that I got out of a hurry-up chicken recipe book. I love the flavor of tarragon, so that made this one a winner for me!

This was VERY good! I doubled the amount of tarragon , it just didn't seem like enough for that amount of chicken ... (and I DO love the taste of tarragon ;) ) Other than that , I stuck right to the recipe. I poured the sauce over the rice. This is a quick enough dish to make on a busy weeknight but it doesn't TASTE quick! :) I will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting !!!
