6 pounds cooked chicken, diced
1 1/2 pound unsalted butter
1 pound all-purpose flour
3 quarts chicken stock
2 1/4 quarts whole milk, warmed
salt, to taste
8 ounces pimento, diced
1 pound chopped, sauteed mushrooms


To make the white sauce, melt the butter in a large saucepan, remove from the heat. Add the flour a little at a time whisking until smooth. Add salt then the warm milk and stock, gradually whisking constantly. Cook and stir until smooth and thick, about 15-20 minutes. The sauce has to come to a boil to thicken.

When the sauce is thick mix the chicken, mushrooms and pimentos into the sauce. Correct the seasoning if necessary. Yields 5 ounces portions.

Serve with rice, noodles or puff pastry shells. Note: Some recipes call for chopped hard-cooked eggs to be added, optional

There is nothing in the recipe directions about adding the chicken stock. Does it go into the sauce? I want to make this recipe for a ladies luncheon and want it to be correct. Please reply to my question.

Yes, it goes in the sauce. The recipe has been edited to clarify this.
