Basil Lemon Butter Cream Sauce
10 mins (prep 2, cooking 8)
8 ingredients
2-3 servings
This is a sauce recipe that was a frequent complement to chicken and fish during my study abroad residence experience with a french family in the Loire Valley region. Cream sauces are very popular paired with white and rosé wines in this geography, and this goes well over a thinly sliced breast of chicken, or a flaky whitefish. Although the sauce itself is somewhat fattening, if used conservatively it's actually a light and refreshing compliment to poultry and fish in the summer. If you absolutely feel the need to tone down the fat, be careful as you don't want the sauce to become too thin as it won't coat as nicely. Enjoy!
