Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
Simmer the onion in the chicken stock until reduced to 1/2 cup.
Combine with the cream or milk, and simmer for a few minutes.
In another pan melt the butter, add the flour, and cook over low heat for about 2 minutes or until the roux is browned.
Add the white wine to the cream sauce, and heat.
Stir in the roux, and cook until thick, stirring all the time.
Add salt and pepper, the mushroom mixture, and cook for another few minutes to blend the flavors.
