Creamy Tarragon Chicken Medallions With Skillet Sweet Potatoes and Beans

Tangy mustard and sweet honey make this dish high in flavour yet easy on the salt. Boneless skinless turkey breast, another lean protein, is a great substitute for the chicken. Use the same weight and cut it into four portions.
