I had to double this complete recipe, I used seasoned salt and increased the fresh garlic and black pepper, I served the chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce/Gravy, it just doesn't get any better than this! thanks fos sharing hon!...Kitten :)

Loved the addition of the tarragon to this classic. I wouldn't, however, classsify this as an easy recipe- wrapping up those breasts can be a major pain I think! Really enjoyed the end result though- thanks for this.

This was good and easy to assemble. I used home made bread crumbs, because I think the flavor is better than store bought.
