  1. Prepare chicken

    In a pot over medium heat, melt butter and brown the chicken breast until golden.

    To the same pan, add ham and onion then season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the onions become golden and tender.

  3. Make roux

    Add flour and coat everything. Cook for a few minutes to toast the flour.
