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


  • 1Heat oven to 400.
  • 2In 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.
  • 3Pour broth into the skillet, heat to boiling. Remove broth from skillet and set aside.
  • 4Saute 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.
