      I really enjoyed this. The chicken was very tender and juicy, but the star of the show was the sauce. I loved the tang of the mustard mixed with the cooking juices! Very easy, and pretty, too. I used a whole bone in breast (personal preference) so my chicken took a bit longer to cook, but that wasn't a problem as I expected it to take a bit longer. Next time I might add a few slivers of sun dried tomato for a bit of sweetness. Thanks for posting!

      We loved this quick and easy chicken dish! I had to use dried tarragon, otherwise made as directed. The sauce with the dijon mustard was just terrific - for me it made the dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      *Reviewed during ZWT5 Family Picks for Chow Hounds Team* The chicken was beautiful and tender, taking around 20-25 minutes to cook through. I think cooking time may vary based on the size of the chicken breast fillets being used. I wasn't keen on the whol tarragon leaves as they are quite strong....but having said that, they did leave a lovely flavour through the entire packet. So we just left them on the sides of our plates. Served with Eggplant, Potato, Tomato Casserole for a complete meal . Photo also to be posted
