Crusted Baked Chicken With Tarragon Cream Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kaarin

This has a flavorful creamy gravy and really isn't hard to make. I serve it over mashed potates and sometimes cut the chicken breast into smaller pieces. A great dish for company and a hit with everyone in our house.

Made this for dinner last night and it was out of this world. My favorite part was the breading. So light but very crispy. I only used 1/4 tsp tarragon in the sauce though. Thanks so much for an amazing recipe
