This is a great chicken dish. Rich flavored and the tarragon puts it over the top.

How to Make Mother-in Law's Awesome Mushroom Chicken Breast

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400.
  2. In a large skillet, place 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine, parsley and tarragon. Heat until butter is melted and hot.

    Saute, in butter mixture, chicken breasts 6-8 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from skillet, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Pour broth into the skillet, heat to boiling. Remove broth from skillet and set aside.
  4. Saute onions and mushrooms in remaining 2 TBSP of butter or margarine; blend in flour.

    Add broth, cream and wine to skillet with mushrooms and onions, stirring constantly until boiling. Take pan off from heat.
  5. Arrange chicken in a 9x13 casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray (I use butter flavored). Pour mushroom mixture over the chickenand bake for 20 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
  6. NOTES: This dish is best if you can use fresh herbs because the flavor is so intense, but if you don't have them dried herbs work just fine.
