Chicken in Tarragon Cheese Sauce

Chicken in Tarragon Cheese SauceTarragon evokes the sweetness of Spring with its subtly licorice-scented leaves. Combined with whipped cream cheese and tender bits of chicken breast, this tarragon-seasoned mixture is perfect served over fresh strands of linguine.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 (about 1 pound total) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
1 (12-ounce) can NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse ground black pepper
1 (9-ounce) package BUITONI Refrigerated Linguine

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat oil in large skillet. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from skillet; keep warm.
  2. Add shallots to skillet; stir, scraping up brown bits on bottom. Cook, stirring constantly, until shallots are tender. Whisk in evaporated milk, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, tarragon, salt and pepper; cook, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens slightly. Stir in chicken; cook until heated through.
  3. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Pour sauce over pasta; serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
