Cooks Tips

- If wished, thicken the sauce with 1-2 tsp cornflour mixed to a smooth paste with a little water. - Add a bouquet garni when simmering the chicken for a herby flavour. - Seasoned flour is simply made by shaking a couple of tablespoons of flour with a good seasoning of salt and pepper and maybe a pinch of dried mustard powder if you have it to hand.
