I think this is an excellent version of bechamel. Prior to this recipe I'd never tried one that included chicken broth, which lightens up the calories a bit, but I discovered I quite liked it. I wrote down the stovetop method (and that's what I used) but the recipe doesn't instruct you to use any of the seasonings if you follow those directions so be sure to write down ALL the ingredients. Mine came out fine because I was adding a different seasoning anyway. I would also advise you NOT to add all the cold liquid at once -- that's the best way known to make lumpy sauces/gravies. Instead add a bit, whisk it smooth, then add a bit more, whisk again, etc. til you've added it all. Thanks for the recipe! P.S. I tested this recipe with fat-free half & half and it came out great. You could make this with skim milk too, just cook and stir til it reaches the right thickness.
