"This is the iconic recipe from Club 21 in Manhattan. The preparation of the bechamel is somewhat interesting. I'm sure you could substitute any less time-consuming bechamel and still achieve satisfying results! At the club, this is served over a bed of wild rice, topped with spinach, then the chicken hash. Shredded gruyere is melted over the top till crusty. Yum!"

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Never even thought of making white sauce in the oven. In the end it was pretty much chicken a la king that took a long time to make.
