Tarragon-Cream Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

Flexibility is the secret to this recipe. If you don't have the wine, you can use chicken broth. Can't find prosciutto? You can substitute bacon or omit entirely. Quick and simple.

Very good recipe. I used ham instead of bacon or prosciutto, as I was trying to get rid of the leftover Christmas ham (The website pulled recipe up for a "ham" search.) I had to add extra salt to make up for the pork difference. Nonetheless, an average rating of 4.67 stars was pretty good for my family.
