A note about serious food allergies

Bring some fancy French into your life with this delightful herb sauce, mounted with rich butter, that melds to the chicken like it was born to adorn it. (Which it was!) Brown sugar carrots add a special brand of sweet magic to these proceedings. Or should we say "douce magie?" Tip: This recipe has a shallot, which sometimes is rough to mince. Easiest way to mince shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across, resulting in minced shallot.

    Add 1/2 cup water, half the butter (reserve remaining for sauce), brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover, and stir occasionally until liquid is mostly evaporated and carrots are tender, 10-15 minutes.
