Creole Choron Sauce Recipe

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

This is my favorite sauce to serve with Fried Soft-Shell Crabs, or any fried seafood for that matter. It’s nothing more than equal parts of Creole Sauce and Hollandaise. Here is the recipe with links to my recipes for both sauces:

Creole Choron Sauce Recipe

1 Cup Hollandaise Sauce
1 Cup Creole Sauce – Dice the vegetables instead of Julienne as the recip indicates.

Whisk together both ingredients. Keep warm in a small bowl sitting in hot water.

Makes 2 Cups.

Chicken Rochambeau Recipe

Since I mentioned the fancy New Orleans chicken dishes in my Chicken Clemenceau post, I figured I would feature a few more. This is a favorite at Antoine’s* though they use a Brown Rochambeau Sauce, where I use Marchand de Vin.

*Note* – Antoine’s reopened December 29th.

Chicken Rochambeau Recipe

2 Chicken Breasts about 4-6 ounces each
2 Slices French Bread, 1/2 inch thick rounds, toasted under the broiler on both sides
2 Round Slices of Ham, lightly browned in butter
1/2 Recipe Marchand de Vin Sauce
1 Recipe Bearnaise Sauce
Parsley, finely chopped for garnish

For the Poaching Liquid:
3 Lemon slices
1 sprig Parsley
1 Bay leaf
1 tsp Black Peppercorns
1 tsp Kosher Salt

Place the lemon slices, parsley, peppercorns, the bay leaf, and salt in a large saucespan. Cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to the point where the water is just steaming, just under a simmer. Add the chicken breasts, poach until they are just cooked through.

To assemble:
In the center of two heated serving plates, place the french bread rounds. Next, place the ham and top with a generous portion of Marchand de Vin. Place the chicken on the Marchand de Vin, finish with a generous portion of Bearnaise. Garnish with the chopped parsley.

Makes 2 Servings
