    In same skillet, combine half-and-half, milk, flour, 1/8 teaspoon salt and tarragon; mix well. Cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens. Add cheese; stir until melted. Pour over chicken and mushrooms. Sprinkle with browned bread crumbs.

  • Au gratin recipes are baked or broiled in order to brown a cheese or bread crumb topping. The bread crumb topping for this recipe is browned in a skillet, so this dish is prepared completely on the stovetop.
  • An au gratin dish is a shallow casserole dish. The broad surface allows for more of the crumb topping.
  • Try this rich chicken casserole with crisp breadsticks and steamed green beans.
