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.

    I didn’t see bacon in the list of ingredients only in the instructions. I added 1/2 pound chopped bacon to the shallots and garlic. I also added garlic pepper to the sauce. It tasted a bit bland.
