For the Chicken:
1/4 pound Gruyere Cheese, Sliced

1 teaspoon Tarragon
2 tablespoons Cooking Oil
2 tablespoons Butter
5 ounces Mushrooms, Chopped

1/2 Onion, Chopped
1/2 teaspoon Tarragon
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Flour
1/4 cup White Wine
1/4 cup Half& Half

Close chicken up with either toothpicks or kitchen twine.

Place breasts in an oven preheated to 350 degrees and cook for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear.

While chicken is cooking, grab up a large saute pan, add the butter and melt it on medium heat.

Add in the mushrooms and cook for a minute or two.
8
Add in the garlic, onion, tarragon, and salt and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

Once thickened, remove from heat and stir in the half & half and fresh parsley. Add additional salt if needed.
