Delicious recipe. Cooking with fresh herbs makes a world of difference. I used approximately 1/2 can of stock in the sauce and found it too soupy, I'll use less next time. I couldn't find couscous, so I used yellow rice and it turned out fine. I put the tomatoes in last and heated just enough so they would be warm, not mushy. Will definitely make this again.

Even my kids liked this. (They are picky eaters)I did make a few changes. I pounded the chicken first to thin it out. I reduced the amount of chicken broth to 3/4 cup and used less fresh tarragon and the tomatoes I cut up in large pieces.I used 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper.

This recipe is quick and tasty. I seasoned the chicken breast with tarragon, carraway seeds, thyme, poultry seasoning, red pepper flakes, and seasoning salt before I browned them. I omitted the corn and added a large can of drained french style green beans, sliced red pepper and mushrooms. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes so I substituted the sun dried variety. Once the vegetables have been added, add more seasoning if needed. Add a little of the lemon juice to the chicken for an extra kick. I agree with the last reviewer.. reduce the amount of chicken stock because it's soupy. I also used rice instead of couscous.
