    I added corn and cauliflower. Awesome meal. Chicken was a little dry but taste was there.

    Creamy tarragon chicken is so good and so easy to make. It's a keeper and one my family asks for on a regular basis. It's going in my recipe box and we'll be making it many more times.

    I added fresh mushrooms to the mix of vegetables. It was easy to fix and smelled heavenly while cooking.
