Chicken With White Wine & Fresh Herb Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Scandigirl

This a wonderful classical French dish, with a simple delicious butter sauce flavoured with fresh herbs and made from the reduced wine cooking liquid. Tips: Use any of the following chopped fresh herbs and herb mixtures; 3 Tbsp. basil or parsley, 3 Tbsp. parsley and 2 tsp. tarragon, oregano, rosemary, thyme, or marjoram; 1 Tbsp. each parsley, chives & chervil and 2 tsp. tarragon. If fresh hers are unavailable, use one-third of the amount dried herbs instead.

Delicious and easy to prepare. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and that works quite well w/the recipe. Served w/brown rice and asparagus - Mangia! Mother Hen
