Tarragon Chicken Salad

The other day, Matt mentioned something about croissants, mmm croissants, but anyway it made me think of my mom's chicken salad.  My mom makes some amazing chicken salad and the last time I had it, she made it for my cousins bridal shower and served it with warm mini croissants.  Well I couldn't get this idea of warm croissants and chicken salad out of my head, so really there was no way to get past it until I made it myself.  I called my mom and she sent me this recipe for Tarragon Chicken Salad from her Silver Palate Cookbook. She adds grapes to the recipe, which makes it extra yummy, and pretty!

  I halved this recipe, because I didn't think we could eat as much as the recipe makes between the two of us.  I also used light sour cream instead of creme fraiche to cover the chicken before I baked it.  I couldn't find creme fraiche at the grocery store and I didn't feel inspired enough to makes my own - ha.  The chicken still came out moist, and easy to shred using sour cream.

I feel like it's so much more of a pleasant cooking/making/baking experience when I have all of my ingredients prepped.  Do you feel the same?
