“I created this recipe out of necessity. Drop in guests, pantry looking pretty grim. So I started substituting ingredients that I did have to make this variation of a buerre blanc. I was braced for disaster but got thumbs up from DH and Dfriends. If you have the time, brine the chicken breasts for 2 - 4 hours in insure super moist meat. You'll find brining recipes on this site.”
