Grilled Chicken with Mustard-Tarragon Sauce

Grilled Chicken with Mustard-Tarragon SauceI adapted this recipe from one I found in the most recent Cooking Light magazine (October 2009). It was very simple to make and tasted really, really delicious. The chicken turned out moist and tender while the sauce was full of flavor. My kids, husband, and I all loved this meal. Both of my kids asked me to put this sauce on other foods like pork and potatoes. I served this chicken with steamed broccoli and Quinoa with Caramelized Red Onions, Bell Peppers, and Garlic.

  1. Oh wow, you've turned the kids into tarragon fans already? I don't even know what it tastes like! I'm dying to try this chicken though, looks delicious! 🙂

  2. I'm totally "adapting" this to the Egg. I really like the mustard and tarragon sauce! This would pair nicely with a coarse mashed potatoes dish.
