Tarragon Chicken with Apples for Two Recipe

Publisher Photo
When friends served us this delicious chicken, I knew I had to have the recipe. The original version called for whipping cream, which is a little high in fat for me. I substituted 1% milk and found that it was just as good but not quite as rich.—Karen Moffatt, Lake Cowichan, British Columbia
