      This chicken is so flavorful. It tastes like a complex recipe, yet it is so simple to prepare...ya gotta love recipes like that! It is one to go to when you want to "WOW!" your guests yet simple enough for a mid-week dinner. I added an extra pat of butter to the sauce and quickly stirred it in before drizzling over the chicken one it was plated. Other then that, the recipe was made as directed. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe Lauralie. Made and reviewed for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game.

      Wow...delicious Lori. The taste of the dijon comes through so subtle, yet really lends a nice blend to the sauce. I used 1/2 and 1/2 and also b/c I didn't have tarragon...I used a sprinkling of basil. (I looked it up as a substitute). I also did this in my cast-iron Lodge frying pan which really browned up the chicken to a golden color. A nice and easy week-end night supper meal. Thanks! Made for KK's Recipe-tag~

      Served this up last night for dinner. I used fat-free Half & Half and dried tarragon. The sauce was delicious. There is only two of us so I did not double the sauce as other reviewers suggested and we had plenty. Very good and very quick.
