Chicken with Bechamel Sauce
I like this recipe because it is easy to prepare and you can use leftover chicken or remaining turkey from Thanksgiving dinner.
5-6 pieces of chicken (it can be any type of chicken; leg , breast, leftover chicken..)
4 tablespoons of flour
2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of milk
1 cup of finely shredded mozzarella cheese
Boil the chicken in salty water until it is tender. Separate the bones and tear the chicken into small pieces with your hands.
In a small saucepan melt the butter , add the flour and stirring constantly add the milk very slowly. Continue stirring until you have a smooth creamy sauce.
Put the chicken into an oven pan with some of the chicken broth that you obtained when you boiled the chicken. Put the béchamel sauce on top of it and sprinkle the cheese. Cook it in the oven until the top gets brown.
