Mustard Chicken

What is your favourite cut of chicken? Though I’m fond of all varieties, I tend to lean towards chicken breasts. I always have a few packages of boneless, skinless chicken breasts on hand. They are like a canvas just waiting for you to add your own unique twist or in this case, flavour. I like recipes that have simple, easy to find ingredients. This recipe for Mustard Chicken is definitely one of those meals!

Use some fresh tarragon if you have it. If not substitute in dried tarragon, but I’d only use about 1/4 tsp instead.
