2 quarts chicken stock
1 tablespoon salt or to taste
2 teaspoons black pepper or to taste
4 each bay leaves, whole

Cook margarine and flour together to make brown roux. Set aside until needed.
Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Dredge in flour and
shake off excess.
If roasting, place on oiled sheet pan and roast in hot oven until browned, set aside.
If you plan to saute the chicken, saute in hot oil until browned, set aside.

seasonings, wine, Worcestershire sauce and enough roux to thicken the sauce to gravy
