    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Wonderful, flavorful sauce that is great over any kind of enchiladas, or even a plain chicken breast. So much flavor in such a simple quick recipe! *Note:* Stock is important and should be used rather than broth. If broth is used you will have a less flavorful, less full bodied sauce. There are many great recipes here on Zaar for stock and you can even find stock at your grocery now too! Any type will do, beef, chicken, even make it vegetarian! Hope you enjoy!

      I made half a recipe (there's only 2 of us) as a late night mini-supper after we came home from one super long day of looking at houses with the family. I used a yellow onion and my Kerrygold butter. I didn't have a parsley sprig so I just used a sprinkle or two of the dried stuff in my spice jar. The flavor sorta reminded me of roast gravy with some bell pepper and parsley. Overall, pretty yummy served over a chicken breast! Made for ZWT 5.
