1 tbsp Montreal Steak Seasoning

½ tbsp Ground Sage

½ tsp Ground Thyme

¾ tbsp Salt & Pepper Mix

1 Whole Bay Leaf

2/3 cups All Purpose Flour

2 2/3 cups Heavy Whipping Cream

  3. Add all vegetables including garlic and cook until they begin to soften.
  4. Add Montreal seasoning, sage, thyme, salt & pepper mix and bay leaf.
  5. Add flour and cook for five minutes, stirring constantly to form a roux.
  6. Add heavy cream, milk and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently with whisk to ensure smooth mixture and no lumps.
  7. Reduce heat to a simmer, add cooked chicken and cook for 20 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid sticking on the bottom.

  9. Add peas and lemon juice, and bring to a simmer.
  10. Remove from heat. Place in bowls. Add puff pastry ( 3 – 5 / bowl) and parsley to garnish. Serve.
