    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    This recipe was originally from Rachael Ray and was for 4 servings, but I revised it for 2 servings. Whenever my grocery store has a sale on chicken breasts, I buy an extra 2 or 3 packages and freeze them. This dish is a wonderfully rich tasting meal that is healthy and budget minded.

      Tasty, light and quick chicken dish. I added one sliced carrot and handful of green peas to the sauce and served with mashed potatoes. Comfort food fast on the table, with minimum hassle.

      I made the original Rachel version (for 4 servings) and thought it was good. I liked the creamy sauce it made, and I like tarragon as an herb so I enjoyed this. I served it with her Roasted Squash Vegetable Medley and the two recipes went good together.

      I think it was good? I made it tonight and I have a cold so I can't taste a thing.. =/ I'll see if it tastes good as leftovers tomorrow if this cold goes away, otherwise I'll have to try again.
