My husband really liked this. I didn't.

This was good, with the unique taste of tarragon (which I love!) But next time I think I will add some garlic and some baby portabello mushrooms to this. I'll probably increase the sauce a little to compensate for the added vegetable. Made this for Please Review My Recipe Tag.

What an amazing recipe!! I modified this recipe for "Make It Healthier" game tag. I used "College Inn" Light and Fat free 50% less sodium chicken broth, and I used fat free sour cream. In step #5 I wilted in 2 cups of spinach. The tarragon in this recipe is critical! I will be making this again.
