Add peas and zucchini; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender. Add wine to skillet; bring to boil. Stir in chicken. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Set aside
  3. Bring stock, thyme and rosemary to boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until ready to use. Melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter in medium saucepan on medium heat. Sprinkle with flour. Stir with whisk until mixture is well blended. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook and stir 2 minutes or until mixture turns golden. Immediately add 1 cup of the stock, whisking until mixture is smooth. Whisk in remaining stock and heavy cream until smooth. Stirring constantly, bring to boil on medium-high heat and boil 1 minute or until sauce is thick. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper
