CHICKEN WITH SORREL CREAM SAUCE

LAST WEEK THERE WAS AN EXPLOSION OF SORREL IN THE L.A.L.A. FARM. I TOOK A BUNCH HOME TO MAKE POTATO, LEEK AND SORREL SOUP, BUT THE REMAINDER I USED TO CREATE A CHICKEN DISH TO SHOW MY STUDENTS HOW THIS SOUR, GREEN LEAF IS SO DAZZLING IN A CREAMY SAUCE. MOST OF THEM HAD NEVER HEARD OF SORREL. WHEN THEY TASTED THE RAW LEAVES I COULD SEE THEIR SKEPTICISM. BUT WE PRESSED ON. I’M NOT ALLOWED TO COOK WITH WINE IN THE SCHOOL, SO I SUBSTITUTED CHICKEN STOCK, WHICH ACTUALLY GAVE THE SAUCE A BODY IT WOULDN’T HAVE HAD WITH JUST WHITE WINE. THE RECIPE WORKS WITH EITHER. WHEN WE BROUGHT THE FINISHED DISH TO THE TABLE, THE CHICKEN THIGHS SWIMMING IN CREAMY SAUCE LACED WITH SORREL, THE KIDS SOPPED UP EVERY LAST DROP.
