Chicken With White Wine & Fresh Herb Sauce

"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


<p>I'm Danish-Canadian! I immigrated to Canada in 1968 and lived in B.C. until 1979, then we had the wonderful opportunity to live in Hawaii for almost 3 years. We moved to Southern Ontario in 1982. Of profession, I'm a Doctor of Human Biochemistry, specializing in Nutrition, a Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine, and a Registered Nutrition Consultant Practitioner, I have my own full time practice. <br />My passion is cooking! I have tested and tried over 10.000 recipes over the last 30 years on my beloved husband who is now residing in a Long Term Facility with Dementia, so I have to make meals for one, healthy and simple. />My pet peeve is too much garlic in a creamy rich sauce. <br />My favourite cookbook is the one I have made myself over the past 40 years. <br />My interests are knitting Scandinavian socks, sweaters, reading. If I had a month off I would visit our adult children and 4 year old Granddaughter, who resides in British Columbia and Florida, and cook them their favorite meals.</p>
