I was really looking forward to some classic comfort food since Chef John advertised it was kind of three classic comfort food meals all times into one and I was so disappointed. First, let me start with what I did like. The chicken was most and delicious, and the sauce was the perfect consistency. The sauce was nice and creamy without being too heavy out thick. The reason I have it three stars was the herbs and spices. I think they're all wrong for this recipe. I'd recommend using thyme or another herb that you think goes well with the chicken in place of the tarragon. The tarragon simply overpowered the dish. My family loves spice, heat, and pepper. It was just way too much of just about everything. I'd recommend omitting entirely either the white or black pepper, just choose one, and reducing all other seasonings by about half at least. While I was making this recipe I was thinking that everything seemed out of whack quantity wise, but I decided against my gut trusting that since the recipe said it was submitted by a 'Pro Chef' that I should leave it up to the 'Pro.' I should've trusted my gut and adjusted everything spice/herb wise.
