    Love this recipe! Husband loved it! Did not have fresh tarragon, so used dried. Served with steamed asparagus. Spoonful of sauce on chicken and a spoonful on the veggies! Delicious! This is a keeper!

    This was a wonderful recipe. I put some of the dressing on the chicken while grilling. It was easy to make and the taste of tarragon added so much to it. Certainly great for company.

    The sauce makes the dish. Very flavorful. I grilled the chicken (thighs) on the grill. It will be delightful light meal for summer. I would easily serve to guests.

    So good & so easy. This is a weeknight staple! I made a flank steak salad the next night and used the leftover dressing - still delicious.

    Excellent, quick recipe. I made the dressing while the chicken cooked so the ingredients could blend. I found the dressing to be a bit tart so I added another 1/2 tsp of sugar. Will definitely make again.

    Easy to prepare, fast to cook! The dijon flavoring in the mustard pairs well with mixed greens. The nice thing about this dish is that it does not have a "heavy" feel to it. I assembled the sauce before cooking the chicken. I also added blue cheese to the salad. It was really delicious. This recipe will be placed in my weeknight dinner rotation!

    Such a great weeknight meal!! Very easy, and the dressing is delicious! I followed the directions exactly. I just wish we had more salad because it went quickly.

    This recipe turned out delicious! I followed the recipe exactly...The flavors of the sauce marry the chicken to the salad beautifully. Highly recommended!

    This was simple and delicious! I did need to finish 2 of the thicker chicken breasts in the oven and be careful if you're going to use Wegmans brand Dijon mustard...VERY spicy! I chopped the chicken breast before topping the greens and served it as a salad. I will be making this again.

    What a great recipe! Very easy to make (our chicken seemed to take forever to cook on the grill pan). Followed recipe exactly. Served with roasted potato wedges. Husband said it was a keeper. We'll be making this often.

    Fantastic dish! It was quick to make and had great flavor. I used a little of the sauce on my brussels sprouts as well. This recipe made the cut and will be included in my "go to" collection!

    This is fantastic. I put a small amount of dressing on the green before adding the chicken, then the rest over the meat. This is a great spring dish and very light. I served it with cheesy orzo and strawberries.

    I love tarragon and mustard and found this dish fell short. The sauce was more like a salad dressing. I will try it again and use the sauce as a marinade. The flavor of the shallots was good, but there were so many little pieces in the sauce.

  • ekuhistorygirl Posted: 03/17/10

    This was ok for me. The sauce was intense so definitely needs to be served over the bed of greens to mellow it out. I don't know if I will make this again but I did eat all the leftovers from the first try.

    Did not have shallots so substituted finely minced green onion and a touch of garlic. Served with asparagus, broiled tomatoes, and sourdough bread. Good enough for company and SO simple.

    This was very simple to make and tasted very good! I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely make this recipe again.

    I thought this meal was really good. I used spinach instead of just greens. We thought the sauce was great. I didnt think this was enough so I made more.. bad idea he hated it, said it was over powering. sent him to work with left overs and his own sauce. got a text saying he liked it with a lot less sauce. guess i will stick to the recipe next time. will make this again.

    Grilled it outside. Perfect summer salad, used mixed spicy greens from the farmers market!

  • SallyR2 Posted: 02/23/11

    I love this recipe. I cooked the chicken in my cast iron skillet and also, like another reviewer, served it with asparagus. I added a little EVOO to the skillet while the chicken was "resting" and then sauteed fresh asparagus spears with a little salt and pepper for about 4-5 minutes. Yummo!

    Excellent, restaurant quality. Fast and easy as well. Will prepare again.

    Really good and simple. Particularly tasty for dijon mustard fans.

    Great dressing! Could omit some of the water to make it creamier, too. Served with sweet potatoes and my Dad couldn't get enough!
