    1. 1
      If chicken breasts are quite thick, pound them with a meat mallet or other heavy object until they are about 3/4 inch thick.
    2. 2
      Finely chop the tarragon leaves.
    3. 3
      Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a heavy frying pan just big enough to hold all the chicken without crowding. While oil heats, season chicken with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Add the chicken and sautè until chicken is cooked through and well-browned, about 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
    6. 6
      Add chicken stock to pan, scraping off any browned bits, and cook until reduced by half, about 2-3 minutes.
    7. 7
      Whisk in mustard, tarragon, half and half (or heavy cream) and any juices from the chicken which have accumulated on the plate.
    8. 8
      Cook until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes more.
    9. 9
      Arrange the chicken breasts on a platter and drizzle the sauce over each piece of chicken.
    10. 10
      Garnish with a few tarragon leaves and serve immediately.
