Note: A salmis (sahl mee) is a dish, usually of game or poultry, prepared by roasting the item partway and finishing it in a sauce. The sauce is usually made with red or white wine and flavored by adding the juices from the carcass or by simmering the carcass in the sauce. The meat may then be simply reheated with the sauce or simmered in it for a longer time.

9. Combine the breasts and the sauce in a saucepan and heat gently until the meat is hot and cooked to the desired degree. It should remain pink on the inside.

10. Strain the sauce again. Season with salt. Finish the sauce by setting over low heat and swirling in the butter.

11. Serve the breasts with the sauce, and garnish with the broiled legs.
