Chicken breasts in a light mustard and tarragon sauce. A quick and simple recipe that you can have on a weeknight at home, but tastes like a French chef made it!
best recipe ever so good just mouth watering. - 06 May 2015
This recipe looked great as is, but after reading other reviews, I decided to take some of their suggestions. I coated the chicken with lightly seasoned flour prior to browning them. After the breasts were cooked, I removed them from the pan and sautéed 2 minced cloves of garlic, ½ of an onion, chopped, and 1 cup of sliced mushrooms until the onion was soft and the mushrooms were mostly cooked. Then I added the cream, mustard and tarragon with the garlic, onions, and mushrooms. I also tripled the cream-mustard-tarragon “gravy” as we like extra. I served this wonderful chicken with mashed potatoes and asparagus. We will definitely make this again! UPDATE: I have made this dish again, and this time I made a few more changes that previous reviewers had mentioned. I rubbed a light coating of Dijon mustard on the chicken breasts a few hours before cooking and let them sit. I still coated the breasts in seasoned flour before browning. Once the chicken was cooked and I removed it from the pan, I added a splash of white wine (slightly less than a quarter cup) to deglaze the pan prior to sautéing the onions, garlic and mushrooms. My husband said it was the best! This time I served it with Stove-Top chicken dressing and a salad. - 23 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe was very good. I added a few things that rounded out the flavors. Changes I made: 1. I coated the chicken with seasoned flour before sauteing in butter/oil mixture. 2. Once the chicken was done, I added 2 minced garlic cloves and 1 minced shallot to the drippings and cooked until soft. 3. I deglazed the pan with a glug of white wine before adding the cream. The garlic, shallots and wine deepened the flavors and gave the dish a better finish. This will definately be one of our favorites from now on! - 03 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
