Tips and Tricks


Use unsalted butter if you want to have more control over the saltiness of the dish. If using salted butter, you may want to reduce the amount of added salts to avoid an overly salty flavor.

Green Onions

Don’t just use the green part of the onions; the white part has a lot of flavor and can add more depth to your dish.


Make sure to finely chop the celery for an even texture throughout the dish. Larger chunks might remain crunchy and not blend well with the smooth sauce.


Whisk the flour thoroughly into the butter to create a smooth roux. This helps in thickening the sauce evenly without lumps.

Chicken Broth and Milk

Gradually add the chicken broth and milk while stirring constantly to avoid lumps. A smooth mixture ensures the perfect consistency for the sauce.

Cooked Chicken

Using leftover rotisserie chicken can save time and add extra flavor to your dish. Make sure the chicken is diced evenly for consistent texture.

Chicken Wing Sauce

Adjust the amount of chicken wing sauce based on your preferred level of spiciness. You can always add more later if you like it hot.

Velveeta Cheese

Cut the Velveeta cheese into small cubes before adding it to the pan. This will help it melt faster and blend more smoothly into the sauce.


Taste your dish before serving and adjust the seasonings if necessary. Depending on your taste, you might want to add more cayenne pepper for heat or garlic salt for flavor.


Stir frequently while the sauce is simmering to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan and to ensure all ingredients are well combined.
