Chicken in a mustard and tarragon sauce

This mustard-tarragon combination is often seen in france and especially with chicken or fish. I have in my press a jar of tarragon mustard but i used ordinary dijon mustard with this recipe. Fresh tarragon is best for the recipe as i dislike the dry version. I even freeze in plastic bags small batches of fresh tarragon as it is the only herbs that will not grow in my garden. Pasta or rice are the best accompaniments to this dish .
