Tarragon Chicken Pasta Salad
Chicken And Tarragon Pasta
The great thing about Lemon Tarragon is that it can be used both in a chicken salad recipe as well as in a chicken soup recipe. The taste of it adds a slight twist to the bland chicken dishes that we usually eat. You can serve it on its own as a light snack or you can add it into a full meal chicken soup that you are serving. If you love chicken soup and pasta, then you will love the combination of lemon and basil and olive oil. It is so delicious that my husband recommends it to everyone who tries it.
