WHITE WINE CREAM SAUCE 

 

1 c. chopped mushrooms
1 c. chopped onions
1 pt. heavy cream
1 1/2 c. white wine ( I prefer Chardonnay)
1/2 c. plus 2 tbsp. flour
2 tsp. tarragon
1/2 tsp. salt and dash pepper
6 tbsp. butter

 

In a large Skillet, melt 1 cube of butter

 Then add the chopped mushrooms, onions and ½ the wine. Simmer and slowly add the flour, for thickening, tarragon, salt, and pepper. Reduce the sauce. Add remaining wine and reduce again.

In a small pot or pan, add the heavy cream and increase heat to medium. Stir the ingredients from the sauté in the pan. Flavor with tarragon according to your taste. Cook until sauce thickens. If too thick, add wine to desired thickness. Continue stirring.

Pour over baked chicken and serve.
