This was super delicious. The pan sauce alone is simply heavenly! But the chicken was cooked to perfection and was so good with the sauce spooned over it. It's a really easy recipe to make, too. Thanks, amafor3. We loved it!

I made this tonight with home made Dijon. I had to use dried tarragon. I would like to try it with fresh. I made this for Best of 2022 on Food Friends and Fun.
