Chicken Breasts / Tarragon Mushroom Cream over Pasta

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

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