    3/4 cup brown rice
    4 4-oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1 tsp. paprika
    1/2 tsp. salt, divided
    1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
    1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 cup fat free sour cream
    1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    1 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon, or 1/2 tsp. dried tarragon

    2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest


1. Cook rice according to package directions; set aside.
