    Dishes like this is why I tell my husband that we need a cast iron skillet to cook with. Simple dishes with chicken, potatoes, and such are the rule in our house and I think a skillet like yours would just make our cooking that much simpler. That said, I will have to experiment with tarragon first. I have never really used it in any of my cooking before.

      Fresh or dried rosemary is a great substitute for tarragon and marries well with chicken.

    I don’t think I have ever cooked with cast iron before!! This chicken dinner looks and sounds amazing and full of flavor. I love dinners full of veggies like this for the kids to eat.

    That looks absolutely delicious. I love that this looks easy to prepare. We’re cutting back on beef and pork and we’re eating more chicken. I am always on the lookout for chicken breast recipes. Thanks for sharing this.

    Yum! I love skillet chicken dinners – they are so easy and the clean up is quick, too. I love the idea of combining the lemon and tarragon flavours – will definitely have to try this one out!
