Great if you make these changes- used olive oil instead of spray,browned the chicken, removed it from the skillet and deglazed the pan with white wine(instead of broth), added the shallots and garlic, then the tarragon, used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of light cream plus a roux(butter and flour)to thicken it a bit. Put the chicken back in and cooked a couple minutes on each side turning once. Healthy is ok for salads- call me old fashioned,I am.


I made this tonight, though I oven roasted the chicken separately -- using only the juices for the sauce, plus some extra chicken broth. I also used half and half instead of cream, dry tarragon, and a little flour to thicken it. The sauce was delicious. I'll be using this recipe a lot. Thanks!

NOTE! You should NOT use cooking spray on a non-stick pan; it can build up a residue that could cause peeling. If your nonstick pan sticks, that might be why. The recipe sounds good, but is very high in sodium. I'd suggest using low-salt or homemade stock.
