Recipe Notes

SOME TIPS:

  • If your sauce simmers too long it can start to get too thick or separate. Simple whisk in a couple of tablespoon of milk or cream to thin it out a bit.
  • Make sure to simmer! If your heat is too high you can scald the sauce.
  • To make this dish even easier I always have frozen rotisserie chicken on hand to use.
