Poulette Sauce Recipe

The Poulette Sauce is a creamy, tangy mushroom sauce for chicken and poultry dishes. The word poulette is from the French word for "pullet," which refers to a young hen.

The Poulette Sauce is made by adding sautéed mushrooms, chopped parsley and lemon juice to a basic Allemande Sauce.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 quart Allemande Sauce
  • 2 cups chopped mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (or to taste)


  1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat until it's frothy. Add the mushrooms and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the Allemande Sauce to the mushrooms. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes.

  3. Stir in the chopped parsley, season to taste with lemon juice and serve right away.
Makes about 1 quart of Poulette Sauce.
