I loved the addition of the tarragon, as it always goes so good with chicken. We loved this so much that I have promised to make it again soon! A new favorite around here!
This was yummy! I will be more liberal with the salt and freshly ground pepper as well as the tarragon next time--maybe even a sprinkle or two of crushed red pepper. Definitely a delightful dinner!
