This was absolutely simple and my hubby & I loved it. It was filling, even though it didn't have a ton of calories. I did double the sauce, as the greens needed some kind of dressing. I really didnt need to, though, as I have plenty left over for the other half that we didn't eat. It was pretty spicy, so if you like less spice use a little less mustard. A definite make-again on a night when I don't have much time and want something yummy!
Grilled Chicken with Mustard-Tarragon Sauce
A tangy sauce enlivens simple grilled chicken breasts; a hint of sugar balances the flavors.
