Ingredients:  
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin

2 Tbls Dijon mustard
1 Tbls fresh tarragon (1 tsp dried tarragon)

Directions:
Sprinkle each chicken breast with 1/4 tsp of pepper and 1/4 tsp of salt. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and saute until cooked through, turning just once (6-10 minutes). Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Pour wine into the skillet to deglaze pan and cook, stirring to scrape up the brown bits, until the wine is reduced by half, about 1 minute. Whisk in the cream, mustard and tarragon and cook, continuing to whisk, about 2 minutes, until thickened. Pour any juices that have accumulated on the plate into the sauce and whisk to combine. Serve chicken with sauce poured over the top.

Easy, yet delish! I always serve with couscous, steamed broccoli, and a nice chardonnay.
