  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 3 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 3 tablespoons sherry or additional reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream


  • Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with tarragon and lemon-pepper. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, brown chicken in butter on both sides. Remove and keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, saute mushrooms until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add 1 cup broth and sherry, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan.
  • Return chicken to the pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 7-10 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°. Remove chicken and keep warm.
  • Combine flour and remaining broth until smooth; stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Drain noodles; serve with chicken and sauce.
