Serves: 4



4 6 oz. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless

1/8tsp salt

1/8tsp pepper

1 lemon, zested

4tsp lemon juice, fresh

2TB basil, fresh, chopped

2TB white wine

Clean and prep chicken breasts and dry. Pound with meat hammer until even and thin

Cook chicken in large skillet with 2TB olive oil over med -high heat until just done. Set aside to cool.


Heat chicken stock. Heat butter and remaining oil in small pan. Add flour to create roux and cook until it is a medium blonde color ( 2-4 mins) Remove from heat and add heated stock slowly to the roux. Stiring until smooth or slurry at each addition. When all stock is incorporated return pan to a medium heat and cook until stock has thickened into a veloute.

While on medium heat, add lemon zest, lemon juice, basil, white wine, salt, and sugar to veloute.

Stir and cook for 2 minutes, then slowly add cream. Add additional stock or reduce for desire thickness, then adjust taste with salt and pepper to personal taste.

Remove from heat and cool. When sauce is cooled place 1/2 cup completely over chicken breast and cover and label. Store in fridge or freezer.
