  1. Whole baked chicken
  2. Broccoli (enough to feed your family)
  3. 50 grams butter
  4. 4 tablespoons plain flour (1/3 cup)
  5. 4 tablespoons sherry
  6. Grated parmesan and tasty cheese
  7. Salt and pepper
  8. Milk
  9. Freshly chopped or dried parsley
  1. Boil, steam or microwave (any method you wish) the fresh broccoli and cook till blanched. Drain and place cooked broccoli evenly into a baking dish.
  2. Either pre cook / bake a whole chicken or buy a charcoal chicken. Remove the meat from the bones, pull apart into strips and spread over the top of the broccoli in the baking dish.
  3. Sieve and drain the left over broth into a saucepan, then poor again into a jug, leaving a small amount of the "jelly" broth at the bottom.
  4. Add enough milk to the jug of broth so it makes 2½ cups of liquid and stir.
  5. Melt the butter in with the broth jelly saucepan, mix in the flour, jug of milk and broth. Heat and stir until sauce thickens, add the sherry, salt and pepper.
  6. Pour sauce over the chicken and broccoli, sprinkle the cheeses and a little fresh or dried parsley and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a 200C oven. Serve with other vegetables.
