I really enjoyed this but I wasn't sure if it was fresh or dried tarragon and so I only used 1 tbsp dried.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add chicken, cover and return to a boil.
  2. Boil chicken for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn off the heat and let the chicken steep, covered, until no longer pink in the thickest part of the breast, 8 to 12 minutes.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a plate and let cool for approximately 20 minutes. (The chicken can be prepared a day ahead of the rest of the salad, if desired.).
