Special thanks to Huggies mum Tania for this recipe. The creamy white sauce is the perfect accompaniment to a hearty chicken and veggie dish.



  • selection of aromatic base veggies – potatoes, carrots, celery, onions
  • 1 whole chicken
  • 3 cups of stock
  • 1 bottle of white wine
  • 1 bottle of cream
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tablespoon of flour


  1. Put stock and wine into big pot with all the veggies. Add chicken and simmer until cooked through.
  2. Place butter in small fry pan and melt. When melted, add flour and stir until it comes together and forms a roux. Roll into balls and put in the fridge.
  3. Remove chicken from stock and leave to cool before shredding apart. While chicken is cooling, continue to boil the liquid to reduce (about 15 minutes).
  4. Turn temperature down and add cream to liquid and veggies. Then add roux balls one at a time, stirring until dissolved.
  5. Add chicken back to pot and warm through.
  6. Serve with or noodles.
