Husband doesn't like paprika so I subsituted garlic powder.

1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest


1. Cook rice according to package directions; set aside.
2. Meanwhile, sprinkle both sides of chicken with paprika, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. In a large nonstick sillet, heat oil on medium-high. Add chicken and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until cooked through. Remove from skillet and transfer to a large plate. Cover and set aside.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add sour cream, Dijon, lemon juice and tarragon. Stir until heated through, scraping up browned bits from bottom and sides of skillet with a wooden spoon, about 20 seconds. Uncover chicken and slice into strips.
