  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup 1% milk
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup finely grated good quality Parmesan cheese


  • In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 full minute, until the garlic is fragrant and beginning to turn golden.
  • Whisk in the flour until smooth, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring gently, until the mixture thickens, 2-3 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese and stir once more to incorporate.
