      The cream separated when I put it in the wine! Perhaps I’ll use chicken stock next time- it tastes fine -just looks wrong

    I tried to make this for dinner, it was horrible. The sauce tasted so sour, just not good.

    I've been making this dish for several years now and it's one of my favorites. Great for entertaining. I have passed it on to my grown daughter who now makes it when she wants to impress a date. I also grow tarragon specifically for this dish as a way to save on the cost of buying tarragon at the grocery store.

    I made this with herb and garlic cream cheese instead of the cream and the tarragon and it was delicious!! Everyone loved it. I highly recommend trying it this way.

    DELICIOUS! I used thyme instead of tarragon and added some minced garlic just before adding the wine to the pan but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Oh - and no need for two tablespoons of EVOO - I only used one teaspoon per chicken breast. The entire process took about 20 minutes so it's great for a hectic weeknight meal. Will definitely make this recipe again and again!

    This recipe is amazingly simple. The chicken and sauce were fabulous. I added a tablespoon of butter just to give the sauce a little gloss. My family loved it and I will make this again and again! Thanks, Martha.

    This recipe really is as easy as the video shows you and it is really delicious. In the video she used fresh tarragon, and it was a little strong for us but dried tarragon is perfect. We double the recipe for the cream sauce because we like to have extra for the asparagus... Great recipe!!
