Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Butter or Margarine
  • 1 Onion chopped (optional)
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic (optional)
  • 2 tbsp Powdered milk
  • 3 cups Chicken broth from the chicken cooking (http://fast2eat.com/recipe/pre-cooked-chicken-and-chicken-stock/) or from Chicken broth mix
  • 4 tbsp All purpose flour
  • 1 pinch Nutmeg
  • Salt to tasty

Instructions

  • In a medium Saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted.
  • Cook the onion, Minced Garlic and salt in the butter until tender, stirring frequently.
  • Sprinkle the flour on the butter and onion and stir with a Silicone Whisk until smooth.
  • Let the butter and flour mixture cook for 1-2 minute over medium heat, whisking constantly. That way, your bechamel won’t taste like flour.
  • You can use the Chicken Stock Fast2eat Recipe or the Chicken Broth Mix.
    If using the mix, boil 3 cups of water using an Electric Kettle and mix it on it.
  • Mix Chicken broth with powdered milk.
  • Add the milk mix to the butter mixture 1 cup at a time, whisking continuously until very smooth. If you stop whisking, your sauce will be lumpy. Bring to a boil (over medium-high heat).
  • When the consistency of your sauce becomes thick and creamy, remove from the heat and season with salt and nutmeg. Taste before seasoning.
  • Set aside until ready to use.

Notes

It is perfect to use in the Creamy Chicken Lasagna Fast2eat Recipe.
