I love sage and onion stuffing but sometimes I find it a little stodgy.
Now a sauce!!! That is a lovely thing.
Made with roasted onions and fresh sage.
There’s something about roasted vegetables it brings out the sweetness in them.
Chicken Breast with Sage and Onion Sauce
1 – Large Onion (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons – Sage Leaves (finely chopped)
4 medium sized Sweet Potatoes (cut in half long ways)
2 – Chicken Breasts
1 tablespoon – Plain Flour
250 Ml – Chicken or Vegetable Stock
Onion Salt to season
Mix the onion and sage together in a bowl.
Line the bottom of your roasting dish with it.
Place the chicken and sweet potatoes on top of the onion mix and drizzle over a little olive oil.
Roast in a 150°c oven for 45 minutes, check half way through to see the onions are not beginning to burn you may need some more olive oil or maybe to cover the dish.
After 45 minutes check that the chicken is cooked through then remove the chicken and potatoes to a place to keep warm.
Place the roasting dish with the onion mix onto a medium hob, add the flour and mix into a dry paste.
Now add half of the stock stir well and liquidise until roughly smooth.
Pour back into the roasting dish, add the rest of the stock season with a little onion salt then heat through and serve over the chicken and potatoes.
