      Very easy to make and tasty too! The chicken breast was moist and tender, and I really like the flavor (and aroma) of the shallots. I think I would cut back on the tarragon the next time...Overall a very good dish.

      We are tarragon lovers, together with the other ingredients it made a beautiful sauce. I used the full 4 teaspoons of tarragon plus extra, I used fresh. But like to point out that I always taste the tarragon I use first, there can be a lot of difference in strength of this herb from one batch to another. Served this with boiled new potatoes and green beans.

      deliciously, easy recipe. We're not too keen on tarragon so I did cut back as per Leta's suggestion. I look forward to making this dish more in the winter.
