You are making a roux which will eventually
thicken the sauce. Now add the wine and
stir or wisk in until the flour forms a paste
about 2 minutes. Now add the tomatoes
and the chicken broth. Bring the mixture to
a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer.
Cover and cook for about 35 minutes or
until the chickenis cooked through.

If the sauce is too thick add a little more
stock. Check the seasoning and add salt
and pepper as you like. Let cool and
refrigerate over night.

This is a very busy month! Mardi Gras and Valentines
day, oh my. This month is full of good food and love is in
the air or it should be. Where shall we spend our time
cooking and for whom? I think I would like to combine
the two into one great meal New Orleans as the entrée
and Valentines Day Chocolate for the dessert. Love is
passion so I want something spicy that will bring on the
heat of the moment and get things going; I choose Spicy
Chicken and Andouille Sausage Ragu on Campanelle
Pasta with Parsley Butter.  To cool things a bit and bring
on the endorphins and sensual arousal a molten lava
cake with double chocolate ice cream and chocolate
dipped strawberries(the strawberries are for AFTER!)
One of the great things about this menu is it can be
made the day before and reheated for service(this
leaves time for OTHER THINGS) Remember to keep this
day stress free so plan and shop ahead of time. Let’s
start with chocolate dipped strawberries.

Chocolate Dipped

4 long stemmed Driscole Strawberries
8 ounces dark chocolate chips
8 ounces white chocolate chips

Melt the dark and white chocolate chips in separate
bows in the microwave. Be careful you don’t burn the
chocolate. Wash and dry the strawberries and clip the
stems to about 2 inches long. Holding the strawberry by
the stem dip it all the way into the white chocolate but
don’t get the leaves at the top in the chocolate. Now
place on a tray lined with wax or parchment paper.
When dry or set holding by the stem again dip one side
and then the other so as to make a V shaped of white
chocolate left and the dark chocolate will be the tuxedo
part of the strawberry. Now take a tooth pick and pick
up some dark chocolate and draw the bowtie and
buttons of the shirt on the white V part of the shirt. You
have just made Tuxedo Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.
Place these in the refrigerator over night but remove to
room temp when you start dinner.
