"I got this from an old cookbook with the cover missing, so I'm not sure where its from. This is an old recipe that has been tried and true. I love tarragon so this was something I really wanted to try and when we did my family loved it, so I'm posting to share with everyone."

    This is a favorite of mine. I've been making it for years. I made it last night, although I couldn't find my BH&G casserole cookbook and had to use the recipe in the regular red & white BH&G cookbook (which didn't have the sauce recipe). I've uploaded a photo of the results which will hopefully appear soon.<br/><br/>I use cut up boneless/skinless chicken breast, both to save calories and because that's what we always have on hand. It's a great, super-easy recipe.

    I grew up eating this dish my mother used to make. It was from a BH&G cookbook. The tarragon really pulls the recipe together. I was happy to find it here and made it last week. Brought back some nice memories of fighting with my sister for the pieces that were stuck to the side of the pan, lol. Thanks for posting.

    I've been using this recipe for years. Tarragon can be omitted to suit children's tastes. I've had many requests for the recipte. It's a great classic.

    It's from Better Homes and Gardens All-Time Favorite Casserole recipes, published in 1977. I was double checking if it was already on zaar. Thanks for posting! I'll rate when I try it.
