    Very good! I wouldn't have thought of combining tarragon, curry and paprika but the combination was delicious. I didn't pound the chicken thin enough so it took a little longer to cook. Like others I had less chicken than the recipe calls for but used the full amount for the sauce (including a little more shallot than required).

    My first recipe from this book. Lovely flavour and really simple. I used 1 large breast, sliced horizontally which was fine for 2 of us. Didn't pound the chicken as it was thin enough. Will definitely make again, would be good for a dinner party.

    quite tasty and simple. Great treatment for skinless boneless chicken breasts. Would make again.

    Extremely good, with fairly light work. The tastes are quite balanced. The flavour profile and work is most certainly not what you expect from Keller, so that might have influenced my rating; it was such a surprise because it was dead easy and somewhat an exotic flavour for him. Will make again lots of times. We made it with only two breasts, but used the same amount of ingredients for sauce as mentioned by another Noter, as that seemed to be dictated by pan size, which would be the same either way.

    p.27. A perfect way to make use of fresh tarragon, whenever it's available to you. Dead easy for two, a bit more work for six as written, because both the pounding and sauteeing of the chicken breasts can only be done a few at a time. Use written quantity for sauce even if cutting down on chicken servings. Equally good with veal scallopini and veal stock.

    Tarragon and chicken are a match made in heavenand the touch of curry and paprika enhance it. I have also made this with bone-in, skin on chicken breasts-saute briefly, then into a moderate oven until done, then continue with the sauce.

    Very good. You wouldn't in a million years think the chicken had been marinated in curry. I mixed the breasts in the curry/paprika mix in the am for dinner that night. Nice quick, easy meal.
