Chicken Triest

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JanetSmith154

From "Jambalaya" Junior League of New Orleans cookbook! Remember to use a dry white wine, such as chardonnay. I don't care for tarragon, so I use herbs de provence. I also have used lite sour cream with good results!

Very easy to make and very tasty. I omitted the tarragon, because I couldn't find it here in South Africa, but it was still wonderful. Served it over pasta with the wine used in the sauce and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.
