    BecR's Note:

    The French really know how to do their chicken---quick, easy, and elegant--this dish is very simple to put together and impressive served to company, or for that special romantic candlelight dinner for two! Wonderful served with seasonal greens or a tossed salad, and Gratin Dauphinois - Potatoes Baked in Cream Gratin Dauphinois - Classic French Potatoes Baked in Cream.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Season the chicken with the salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Heat the olive oil and the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and saute until cooked through, turning once (about 5 minutes total time). Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and keep warm.
    3. 3
      Add the Cognac and the wine to the pan and deglaze, stirring to scrape up the brown bits. Now add the sliced mushrooms and saute for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms begin to soften and the sauce is reduced by half.
    4. 4
      With a slotted spoon, remove the mushrooms to the plate of chicken, and keep warm.
    5. 5
      Whisk in the cream, mustard and tarragon to the sauce and cook, continuing to whisk, about 2 minutes until thickened. Pour any juices that have accumulated on the plate into the sauce and whisk to combine.
    6. 6
      Serve the chicken topped with the mushrooms and wine sauce, garnish with the snipped parsley. Wonderful served with a tossed salad and Potatoes Dauphinoise (Gratin Dauphinois - Classic French Potatoes Baked in Cream).

      This recipe was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed, even my picky husband. The only change I made was that I doubled the Cognac Dijon Sauce. I will definitely make again. Thank you for the recipe
