Sometimes the perfect sauce is a mere accident.
One such discovery was conjured up as a result of a rather plain chicken breast in need of some warmth, excitement and a luxurious taste. Sage, I promise, was the key.
The aroma of olive oil in a pan, with drips of crushed garlic, tossed together with a handful of finely chopped button mushrooms and I’m halfway to a culinary success. It is only when the mushrooms have wilted slightly, that the single cream tub can then be generously poured over and sprinkled with some finely torn sage leaves.
This is the essence of sauce perfection, the essential mix of comforting, home cooking, a concoction of necessary to make ones chicken delectable and a happy mistake; a winter sauce was made.
