I needed a quick dinner with ingredients on hand, and this fit the bill! I didn't have any tarragon, so I subbed basil. I omitted the salt because the condensed soup has a high sodium content, and it turned out lovely. Served with brown rice, and roasted cherry tomatoes with asparagus. Thanks for the great recipe!

I made this for the first time a few weeks ago and made it again tonight. Very elegant, simple and it tastes delicious. Didn't have any almonds, served over rice with veggies. Even my picky two year old was asking for seconds. He did the same thing last time I made it, therefore it is definitely a keeper. Thanks papergoddess!

Prepared 2 boneless, skinless breasts for DH and me. Found I did not have cream of chicken soup, and used cream of mushroom. It was done in 35 minutes at 375*. Thanks for posting, papergoddess.

Wow, I really liked this a lot! I'm sure I've had tarragon before, but I'd never used it myself. This was a great intro to it. I quadrupled this recipe first time out and used thighs instead of breast meat. I paired this up with brown rice, of which I made plenty. After dinner, I took the meat off the bones, portioned out the casserole and brown rice, and froze them to take to work for lunch or for a quick dinner for the kids. It was perfect! I just finished the last frozen meal earlier this week. This is easily an OAMC dish. I'll be making this a lot.

This was a big hit. I have realized that I am not a big fan of tarragon but I have 2 jars (by accident) and want to use some up. My sauce seemed a little salty so I think next time I will leave out the salt. Thanks for a simple winner.

Quick, simple, and delicious! I was under the weather and didn't feel like standing in front of the stove, so I chose this. It goes together in a snap and has a wonderful taste and texture. My only changes were to add minced onion to the sauce instead of topping the chicken with sliced onions, and I omitted the optional almonds. A real family pleaser that is special enough for company. I will make it again and again! Thanks for posting!

This recipe is great. It is so simple yet so tasty. I might try leek or green onions next time instead of regular onions, think they may work better. My 3 daughters asked for more chicken (the cat usually ends up eating their leftovers) which is a huge plus for me. I will definately make this again, yum.

Made this tonight. Used Cream of Chicken Soup for the cream of chicken soup. I made 1/2 a recipe, used 1/2 the soup, and omitted the milk, since the homemade cream of chicken was not condensed. This was sooo good that my normally meat picky preschooler ate almost 1/2 a breast on his own. We had mashed potatoes with it and used the soup for a gravy.

Good flavor but the sauce was somewhat gluey and gloppy...I'm wondering if baking it covered would solve this??
