Tarragon Cream Chicken

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by IngridH

This came from Cooking Pleasures Magazine, March 2008. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks easy and yummy. If you don't have tenders, you can substitute boneless, skinless breasts, but you may need to cook a bit longer. For a dish with a little more zing, add 2 teaspoons of course ground mustard with the cream. Updated 7/28/11: I made this for dinner last night, and the family loved it! I used the optional mustard, and it really made the sauce.

Yummy. This is a wonderful upscale dish that I served over buttered pasta sprinkled with a bit of parmesan cheese. Also, when I removed the chicken from the pan (I used cubed breasts), I sprinkled them with a splash of lemon juice and it added a very nice touch. Thanks for sharing a delicious chicken dish. :)
