This is my favorite thing that my Mom makes. I changed it a little bit because we're trying to eat healthier so i substituted whole wheat flour and low-fat milk.


  • Small whole chicken(i used two large bone in chicken breasts)
  • 1/2-1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2-1 tsp Poultry seasoning
  • 3 Celery stalks
  • 3 Carrots
  • 1/2 cup Margarine
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 2 cups Milk
  • Rice or egg noodles (to serve w/ finished product)


  • Put Chicken Carrots and Celery in large pot.
  • Cover with water up to about an inch over the top of chicken.
  • add poultry seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and let boil until chicken is cooked through (up to about an hour and a half depending on the size of the chicken or chicken pieces)
  • remove chicken and vegi's from broth and cut into bite size peices removing skin and bones from chicken and set aside
  • take out 2 cups of broth and set aside
  • in a smaller pot (or same pot if you want)
  • melt the margarine at medium/low heat.
  • whisk in flour/tsp of salt,1/4 tsp of pepper mixture.
  • allow to bubble for a min or so (gets rid of the floury taste a little)
  • whisk in milk and broth about a 1/4 cup at a time.
  • turn up heat to medium and allow to boil stirring frequently
  • once it boils it will start to thicken.
  • once the thickness you would like add in pieces of chicken and vegi's.
  • serve over rice or egg noodles.
