Chicken / Tarragon Mushroom Cream over Pasta

Cooking time: 30 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

         I cut the chicken in thick slices for this dish, making it more of a 'chicken' dish than a pasta.  Adding the spinach makes it a one-dish dinner of an easy meal during this busy week.
