Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken
This was soooo good. I think I'm in love! I breaded the breasts in seasoned flour and added garlic and onion and a bit of white wine to the sauce. Served it with mashed potatoes and a salad. I will definately be making it again. Might add mushrooms like some of the reviewers.

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake
This dish was so delicious. My whole family loved it. Like other reviewers, I seasoned the chops with pepper and seasoned salt before browning them. I then used a 32 oz. bag of "Southern-style" (cubed) hashbrowns, 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup milk and 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese and seasoned with seasoned salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cooked for about 45 minutes, then topped with onion pieces and 1/2 cup cheese. Came out nice and creamy without being overly runny. This is great comfort food and will probably show up an our menu often.
