You don't need a luxury kitchen to prepare gourmet meals at home. My name is Dennis and I live in a mobile home in a trailer park. This is from my kitchen.

This Week's Feature Recipe:

Chicken with Mushroom Velouté Sauce

Chicken with Mushroom Velouté

I'm not sure if I featured this recipe or not. The video wasn't on YouTube; so, probably not. This recipe makes use of one of the "mother sauces," velouté. The name means velvety smooth. I've been experimenting with sauces lately. Velouté is made by thickening stock, such as chicken stock, with a roux made with flour and butter. That's the "mother" part of the sauce. From there the velouté can be flavored in various ways to make a complex sauce. I used onions, garlic, and mushrooms. For the pasta I made my own garganelli, little tubes, but I think the best substitute would be penne pasta. This is one of the oldest recipes I have and I've enhanced it several times.
