Make It

1. Bring water and rind to simmering in saucepan. Simmer 15 minutes; drain. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt and pepper. Coat chicken on both sides with flour.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in nonstick skillet. Add shallots and chicken; cook 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add tarragon, juice and granules; cook, turning once, 7 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove to platter.
