Tarragon Chicken

From: EatingWell

This creamy sauce is a classic with chicken - and while tarragon is the traditional herb, thyme or rosemary would also work beautifully. Serve with sauteed string beans and wild rice.

4   boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat (1-1 1/4 pounds total)
1/4 teaspoon  salt, plus more to taste
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
3 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil, divided
1/4 cup  finely chopped shallots
1/2 cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup  dry white wine
1 tablespoon  Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon  reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon  chopped fresh tarragon
1. Season chicken on both sides with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil.
2. Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan. Add shallots; cook, stirring, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add broth and wine and bring to a simmer. Cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
3. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; reduce heat to low. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a warmed platter. Stir mustard, sour cream and tarragon into sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper and spoon over the chicken.
