Dinner was enjoyable, but the flavor just wasn’t right. I wanted to use some chicken I had in the freezer, so I searched Cooking Lite for a simple sauce to put over the chicken. I found a recipe that only required tarragon, honey mustard, and sour cream so I decided to try it for the sake of simplicity. We actually didn’t have sour cream or plain yogurt on hand, so I settled for vanilla yogurt reasoning that the spices would conceal the sweet yogurt.
We also didn’t have any plain honey mustard, so I used this southwestern honey mustard (which is awesome on sandwiches, by the way).
The recipe called for 2 tsp of tarragon, which is maybe where the flavor went wrong?
After cooking the chicken in the skillet, I quickly heated up the sauce.
And served it over chicken and rice with green beans!
The flavor was strong, but something was just off with this sauce. I think it was the combination of too much tarragon and the kick of the southwestern mustard. I usually love recipes from Cooking Lite, but every component of this meal just needed butter!
Two freezer snicker-doodles are currently thawing and I’m gonna watch a little TV. Have a good one.
