Expert Tips

Any kind of milk or whipping cream is fine to use depending on how healthy you want the sauce to be.

You can add even more nutrition by adding carrots, corn or even potatoes to the dish like a pot pie!

The sauce and chicken can be made an entire day ahead, then add the breadsticks and bake when you’re ready to serve.
