I was wanting to try something different and found these in my search. Very moist and tender as others have stated. I added a bit of garlic to sauce and to chicken. As well as added some pepper to the sauce. My firsttime using Taragon and it gave an interesting flavor. I was expecting more of an intense flavor rush from this dish but found it had more of a mellow, comforting flavor. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is truly wonderful!! The chicken rissoles are so moist and tender and I love the flavour of the tarragon that comes through. The rissoles by themselves are gorgeous but with the sauce wow, they are just so good. Like other reviews the sauce would have so many possibilities with other meat dishes. We really enjoyed these so much and the only change I made was to add some garlic to the sauce. An excellent post Mandy and for such ease of making, with such exceptional results, it goes way up into my favourite meals.

Tasty moist rissoles and a wonderfully flavoursome sauce: YUM! For the rissoles, I minced the onion and added 3 cloves of minced garlic (personal taste preference). I made the sauce exactly to the recipe except for using Greek yoghurt instead of the cream, a pretty standard substitution for me. Tarragon is a herb I've not used often, if at all, and I was really wondering just what it would be like. In a word, in this recipe: delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Mandy!
