roast chicken with herb-cream wine sauce

Roasted chicken....and now the herb cream sauce...
I chopped up the basil, rosemary an a green onion and added it to 3tbs butter, add 3tbs flour to make a roux

add in 1/2 c dry white wine, 1/2 c chicken broth fresh ground pepper, salt and appx 1 1/2 to 2c whole milk...bring to a boil over med-hi heat... it will thicken up nicely

here's my roast chicken, I always soak it in a brine before roasting.. this time it was a wine-broth-garlic brine for 6 hrs before roasting... and y'all know I LOVE using kitchen twine!

ok... hubby was hungry so I couldn't dawdle too much in the pics... and I forgot the greenery. But, I'm only human.. keeping it real! (sometimes the hubby just wants to eat!)

I'm doing this the next time I make a roast chicken. I usually use herbed butter medallions placed between the meat and skin (rosemary, sage, thyme, garlic, etc.) and baste with a beer broth often during roasting. I've been wanting to change it up and this looks like the perfect recipe to try. Thanks!
