Nice and creamy chicken dish from "The New York Times Cookbook"
Top Review by Darkhunter
A very nice chicken dish. The tarragon did not over power the chicken. I did have to add a little more chicken broth before returning chicken to pan, just because of the look of the roux. Glad I did, because it would have been bad news. As it was, this was a great little dish that we will have again. Thnx for posting. Adopted for Spring 2008 PAC.
