I read the reviews this morning and thought, how bad could it be? It was terrible - don't make this. I used some extra salt for additional flavour and while chopping the tarragon still thought at least that would make it tasty. I'm not one to leave food (ever!), but tonight was the first time I had to just leave it. (My potatoes came out fine, but the chicken tasted bitter). It was just suggested to me to put mayo on top to make it taste better - maybe I'll finish it after all - but would never ever make this again.
