The deliciously herbal flavor of tarragon pairs perfectly with the bright pop of cherry tomatoes. The layers of flavor in this sauce tastes like it was a long labor of love but the meal came together in just around 30 minutes.

Cook: 20 minutes.
Stovetop, oven if needed.

  • 4 Chicken breasts, boneless, skinless

  1. In a medium pan over medium heat add 1tsp. of olive oil.
