  • Cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Remove the pan from heat. Add chicken stock and whole milk, whisking until smooth.

  • Increase the heat to medium and bring the mixture just to a simmer, whisking constantly. Remove the pan from the heat; scrape the corners and sides of the saucepan with a wooden spoon or heatproof rubber spatula, and whisk hard to break up any lumps. Return the pan to the heat and, whisking, bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute.

  • Stir in chicken or turkey and sherry (optional). Cook for 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat and season to taste with lemon juice, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
