Mamma mia! This brown butter sauce is based on “velouté,” which is one of the five “mother sauces” the French and culinary types are so crazy about. A traditional velouté is a stock (made from the bones of the animal) mixed with a roux, flour, and butter. We hue very close to tradition here, giving you a sauce of chicken base, flour, and butter, to adorn the chicken with, bringing a “velvety” touch to the succulent bird. After making yourself this meal, you'll be able to say you've got one out of five mother sauces down!
