Chicken with Tarragon Sauce
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
This is one of the best recipes from Taste of Home I've made. The sauce is wonderful, and I'm someone who didn't used to like tarragon. I did follow other viewers' suggestions and added a half pound of fresh mushrooms and some Marsala (I didn't have sherry). I'll use the Marsala again because it really took the flavor up a notch. Thanks for this great recipe.
This dish is so good! "Restaurant quality," as my husband stated. I followed the recipe exactly except that I cut chicken breasts in half horizontally to make thinner pieces and did not pound them. The chicken cooked up moist and flavorful, and the sauce was scrumptious on rice pilaf which I prepared to go with it, along with sauteed fresh yellow beans. I was thrilled to have a recipe that used fresh tarragon from my herb garden-will definitely make again! VFE
Fabulous sauce! It would be great on steak too!
I was excited to make this as other reviews said it was very easy. I have never been successful making a cream sauce so I thought I would give it a try. I obviously missed some direction in the recipe because my sauce ‘broke’ and was an unappetizing mess. It tasted good but looked like it curdled. Needless to say, my family was hesitant to try it and are not asking me when I will make it again. I’ll be looking for basics of a Creme sauce on you tube videos. I’m sure there is an old Julia Child video or a recent Babish video that will be educational. Not giving the recipe a bad review, just my efforts to make it. Lol!
This was amazing! I had to use red onion and a smidge of garlic because I didn’t have any shallots. I served it over mashed cauliflower for me and mashed potatoes for my son - he snarfed it down and immediately asked for seconds! I will definitely make again!
DE-LISH-OUS~~ Easy, fast and soooo good!! Made as is, except my tarragon was dried and a bit old, but it still was a winner in our family. Served with smashed potatoes and green peas. Thank you!!
What can you substitute for tarragon?
Excellent. Used half chicken broth and half whole milk, added mushrooms because I had to use them up.

Very tasty. As a suggestion, Double the heavy cream in order to get more sauce. I added button mushrooms as an added feature. Served over rice with a side of asparagus. Yummy!
