Chicken With Be'chamel

I love this easy to make chicken covered in the mouthwatering French be'chamel. This meal taste fabulous served along with rice and vegetables. I always save my chicken broth after I have used it. That stuff is pure gold to me when cooking. You can cook about anything in it and it makes everything taste simply amazing.

1 large whole chicken,cut into 4 pieces
1 celery stalk, sliced
1 carrot, diced
1 small white onion, diced
1 bay leaf
6 green cardamom pods

1.In a 8 quart pan add chicken, celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf and cardamoms. Cover chicken with water. Allow to come to full boil then reduce heat to low covered. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes. (Reserve chicken broth and place in refrigerator for later use.)

2.Turn oven broiler on high. On a baking sheet lined with foil place chicken pieces. Place under broiler and allow chicken to get crispy 5-10 minutes. Serve chicken with be'chamel sauce over it.

Yields: 4 servings

Looks really good. Thats an interesting technique, cooking the chicken in water, and then broiling it.

Sorry about the comments I have no idea what has been going on. It did not work almost a month and now I thought it was again. Its so annoying! I like to boil the chicken in veggies and spices to gain flavor, moisture and to loose the fat. I then place it under the broiler to get that crispy texture without having that dry blah chicken.

Will be sending the recipes soon inshAllah ukti.
