How do you like your chicken? I am always in the quest for a great recipe. With winter very mild here in the South West, the warmth and rich winter fare is not so present in our dinner table. However, this recipe can transport to that cold weather vibe.
An easy sauce that goes perfectly with chicken, mashed potatoes and even poached egg as something new and exciting. Do, however, make it at the last minute as the cream as a tendency to harden and you want it a bit runny. Delicious either way.

Remove all the extra fat from the chicken and place skin up in an ovenproof dish. Salt and pepper abundantly and sprinkle a bit of olive oil over the chicken. Bake in a hot oven for 30 minutes.
In a large with high side pan, add the olive oil and sauté the shallots, bacon, and garlic. Stir regularly. When the bacon is cooked to crisp add the wine and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 2 minutes and reduce to half.
Add the heavy cream and peas. Bring back to a boil before lowering the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 4 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the sage and cook at low heat for another 2 minutes.
