    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This juicy and tender chicken is scented with the sweetness of tarragon and the healthy flavors of tomatoes, leeks, green onions and garlic (with a little white wine). This would be a nice company dish, or a homey supper served with buttered egg noodles and a salad. Prep time includes marinating, and you could use canned diced tomatoes (to equal 4 cups) instead of fresh to save some time; but in the summer use vegetables right out of the garden!

      Dark, rich-looking, and tasty; this is real French Bistro cooking! We enjoyed it with a simple salad and will certainly have it again. (... but we love that tarragon ... and garlic!) Leek-less, I tossed in some cold, fridge-living mushrooms that had been previously sauteed in Balsamic Vinegar, but that - and adding a crusty roll to sop up the gravy - was my only addition/change. Thank you.

      The chicken was tender and flavorful; however, my family did not care for the sauce. Despite cooking it for almost 1/2 hour, it barely reduced, and I didn't want to cook it any longer for fear the vegetables would turn to mush. As a result, it was very watery . . . I served it over spaghettini, so watery sauce was not good! It may have been watery because I used one can of diced tomatoes (I only had six fresh). Next time, I would drain the tomatoes if using canned. The tarragon was a bit overwhelming as well. I would suggest cutting down on it a bit.
