How To Make Tarragon Chicken With Carrots And Linguine

This recipe for Tarragon Chicken with Carrots and Linguine is a great recipe for many reasons. Isn't that what we all want in a recipe' First, it is a quick and easy recipe. If you follow any of my blogs, you know I constantly stress that busy families can cook good meals at home in a matter of minutes. Forget the fast food drive-thru windows, cook at home and have good family meals and bonding time around the kitchen table! This is a meal you can have on the table in less than thirty minutes! Second, it is a nutritious meal. Boneless, skinless chicken, a vegetable and pasta all in one quick dish; what more could you want' To make the meal even more nutritious, use whole grain pasta. Most families need more fiber in their diets. If you cook whole-grain pastas at home, your children will accept them as the norm and develop the healthy habit of eating them routinely. Third, it is also a great recipe for the diabetics in the group. No need to cook something special for them. Whole-grain pastas are better for diabetics, too.

6-oz uncooked linguine
1 cup stock
1 lb skinless boneless chicken breast
1 small onion, sliced crosswise
2 carrots, cut into julienne strips
8 mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp dried tarragon

Cook 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the carrots, mushrooms, parsley, and tarragon. Heat until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add linguine and toss to combine. Heat until linguine is hot. Remove to a serving bowl or platter and sprinkle with cheese and green onions.
