    D. Todd Miller's Note:

    This hearty and delicious dish is actually diet-friendly! The recipe was printed in a local newspaper about 10 years ago; however, the recipe is identical to one found in the "Williams-Sonoma Kitchen Library: Healthy Cooking" by John Phillip Carroll. I recommend serving this over rice.

    1. 1
      Peel the carrot, quarter it lengthwise and then cut crosswise into pieces 1/2 inch thick. Set aside with the onion and the mushrooms.
    2. 2
      Coat a large nonstick frying pan with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. When hot but not smoking, add the chicken breast halves and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, until browned (about 2 minutes per side). Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
    3. 3
      Return the pan to medium-high heat and add oil. When hot but not smoking, add the carrot, onion, and mushrooms and cook briskly, stirring frequently, until the vegetables have softened and are lightly browned (about 7 minutes).
    4. 4
      Sprinkle with the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until fully blended (about 2 minutes longer).
    5. 5
      Add the broth and the tarragon (if desired) and bring to a boil, stirring frequently until slightly thickened.
    6. 6
      Return the chicken breasts to the pan, pushing them down into the liquid. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until the chicken breasts are opaque throughout (when cut open with a knife) and the vegetables are tender (about 10 minutes).
    7. 7
      Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.

      Very light and tasty. I used just a tablespoon of flour and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

      Very simple recipe to follow, didn't have tarragon so substituted basil, oregano, thyme (my fave combo), deglazed with white wine after initial browning just to bring a little bit more flavor to the mix, served with sauteed summer veggies, my kids thought they had died and gone to heaven! Thanks for the recipe DTM!!!
