    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from BH&G’s Wok Cuisine cookbook. As originally written, this recipe seemed a little bland so I increased the tarragon from a 1/4 to 1 teaspoon and added a tablespoon of tarragon vinegar. Nutrition information per serving before the addition of 1 tablespoon vinegar: 382 calories, 30 g protein, 47 g carbohydrate, 9 g fat (2 g saturated), 91 mg cholesterol, 299 mg sodium, 809 mg potassium.

      Although I cut this recipe in half for the 2 of us, I did use large chicken breasts & the total weight was about 14 ounces! Followed the recipe after that, & had a delightfully tasty chicken dinner! Now I have a great new way of preparing chicken thanks to you!
