"I really enjoyed the grapes as a contrast to the cream sauce. The sauce was strange. It was at the same time heavy while it was light. It was a little too perfumey with the tarragon. I'm still undecided as to whether or not I'd make it again..."

"This chicken dish was awesome! I didn't have any wine open so I used dry sherry and it turned out great!"
