How It’s Made – Bechamel Sauce
This creamy, cheesy spinach dip pasta starts with a bechamel cheese sauce. Bechamel is a simply and creamy sauce that’s a great addition to this recipe. To make this sauce, first start by making the roux – a thickening agent made with equal parts butter and flour. Allow the butter to melt, then add in the flour and cook for a minute, then begin adding the milk. Add the milk about 1 cup at a time and whisk well after each addition. The sauce needs to be smooth and clump free. Add in the parmesan and allow it to melt into the sauce over low heat. Add more parmesan on top when serving for some extra cheesiness!
Next, this incredible chicken pasta dish gets juicy chunks of chicken breast, add plenty of marinated artichoke hearts and create a delicious sauce with white wine. First, brown the cubed chicken breast all over and season with salt. I recommend leaving the chicken in large chunks so it stays juicer. The chicken doesn’t need to cook all the way through, it just needs to brown at this stage! Next, add in the wine and spices. The white wine adds so much incredible flavor to this dish and I highly recommend adding it. If you prefer not to cook with wine, just use chicken broth instead and add a tablespoon of lemon juice for zestiness.
Combine the bechamel cheese sauce and chicken, then add in the spinach last. It doesn’t need to cook for too long, just until the leaves are wilted. When I was recipe-testing this dish, my husband had THREE servings and that says a lot! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have!
