My oldest daughter can't get enough of the tarragon sauce. She uses biscuits to soak up every scrumptious drop. My husband and I like it over mashed potatoes. —Tina Westover, La Mesa, California

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package (10 ounces) julienned carrots
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 3 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 small zucchini, thinly sliced


  1. Sprinkle chicken with paprika. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Cook chicken until lightly browned, about 2 minutes on each side; remove from pan.
  2. Add carrots and mushrooms to same pan; cook, covered, until carrots are crisp-tender, 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a small bowl, mix soup, tarragon and lemon juice until blended; pour over vegetables. Return chicken to pan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, 8 minutes. Top with zucchini; cook, covered, until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165° and vegetables are tender, 6-8 minutes longer.
