Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the olive oil into a 4 to 5 quart saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the flour and stir with a wire whisk until all the flour is dissolved and the mixture looks like a paste.
  3. Reduce the heat and slowly add the wine; the mixture will start to thicken quickly.
  4. Continue to stir and remove from the heat, if necessary, until all the wine has been mixed inches.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken broth while you continue to stir.
  6. Simmer, uncovered, for approximately 1-2 minute, or until the taste of alcohol is no longer present in the sauce.
  7. Be sparing with the salt and pepper. It�s better to underseason this sauce, because you will season it again in the sauté pan.
  8. If this (or any) sauce ever has lumps caused by undissolved flour, just pass the sauce through a sieve or a mesh strainer. It will come out lump-free.
