Turned out so much better that I expected. Directions were clear and recipe was economical, considering it's at least as good as anything I've had in most above-average restaurants. We served it over a basmati/wild rice mix. BF and I absolutely loved it. Will definitely make again!

Delicious, tender chicken made a great supper with rice and green peas! I used only 2 chicken breasts, but doubled the sauce. Subbed half and half in place of whipping cream and white wine for the brandy. Hadn't ever cooked with fresh tarragon, so wasn't sure what to expect, but it was easy to make and the sauce was good on rice! Thanks for a new chicken recipe!

This is indeed an easy and flavorful sauce for chicken. Though I really liked the taste as it was, I had some thawed chopped spinach sitting around begging to be used, so I included it and it was a very good addition. Thanks for sharing!

I freaking Loved this! 2 subs- used walla walla sweets for the shallots and a slightly sweet white wine for the brandy. Instead of simering on the stove, I coverd and roasted in the oven at 400 for 25 minutes, as I was also making Roasted Green Beans and had the oven on. It finished up perfectly, tarragon is my new favorite herb. Served with wild rice for a perfect dinner menu.

I've made this recipe many times and it's always been a hit with my family. I've substituted white wine for the brandy a number of times, used chicken breasts sliced in half lengthwise and have added mushrooms. Quite a nice sauce for rice as well, though it doesn't stick very well to noodles.

I really enjoyed the taste of the chicken! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, half-and-half instead of whipping cream, and apple juice instead of brandy.

This is a lovely recipe with an irresistible combination of flavors. It is a bit more suited to the somewhat confident cook who can reduce ingredients (fats, shallots, brandy) and/or increase ingredients (chicken stock, tarragon, mustard) for the wanted results. I used 1 pound boneless chicken , each cut into halves. I didn't have Dijon mustard - so used regular yellow "prepared" mustard, and needed more than 2 teaspoons. The directions were clear, the finished dish tasted delicious, and I had enough sauce to steal at least a ladle full to stir into my accompanying rice before serving. Yummy!!

This is a wonderful dish! I used just chicken breasts and DOUBLED the sauce which I am so glad I did. Outstanding! This is definitely a dish worth serving company. Impress your friends, make this dish for them. Thanks AGAIN Heather for sharing this.

Wonderful flavour!! Made this recipe with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Made lots and it was all gone in one sitting. Beware: The sauce leaves you looking for more!!
