Have a dish...but help me find the perfect sauce!

So I came across a recipe in a magazine last year and it turned out to be something I really love: chicken breast wrapped in sage and pancetta (with sage butter stuffed inside the breast). I sear the chicken then slowly finish in the oven. I usually serve it with garlic roasted new potatoes. My boyfriend and his parents loved it, but they were all like, "Where's the sauce?" And I kind of see their point, I've never been a huge sauce-on-protein person but in this dish a sauce would probably not hurt.

I was thinking something mild and not too heavy, like a white wine sauce. I googled this recipe to see if it is usually made with sauce but didn't find anything. Any ideas? I am a sauce novice so...butter or olive oil? Flour or no flour? Any thoughts would be very appreciated! I'll be making this dish at a dinner party next week and want to have a saucer to pass around with it for the sauce lovers.

Thanks!
