This recipe is a combination of internet recipes, plus my own ideas after trying to make it so many times. I like it because it's the kind of recipe that you can keep tweaking as you're cooking until it's just right.
*2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
*2 tablespoons of flour
*¼ tablespoon of salt
*About 1 cup of milk
*1 chicken bullion cube (caldo de frango)
*Some Parmesan cheese
*Any spices you want (pepper? oregano? I usually don't add salt because of the Parmesan and the bullion cube)
*Melt the butter in a small pot on very low heat. Patience!
*Add the flour and caldo de frango, and any spices you want. Mix the dry ingredients in quickly so they don't burn.
*Once the dry ingredients are mixed and hot, add the milk. Continue mixing. The sauce will thicken.
*Add more flour, butter, and milk until it has the consistency that you want.
*Add the Parmesan cheese and mix it until it melts. Keep mixing until the sauce has the consistency that you want.
Sometimes Alexandre and I add vegetables directly into the sauce, like carrots and green beans. You can also put this sauce on top of my stuffed chicken recipe. :)
What do you like to put in your white sauce?
