Awesome!!! I used this on some boneless chicken breasts and it was as you said "yummy"! The only thing I did wrong was I used to much kosher salt, I tried to sprinkle it out of the box, (dumb move) and about a tablespoon at least went into the pan! I got out as much as I could but it was still salty. Totally my fault! It was still great though! Thanks! I have lots of fresh Tarragon and I love sauces!
