Preparation

1
Melt butter; add flour and whisk. Add milk and cream all at once. Whisk on medium high (don't scald over) until smooth. Let boil while whisking constantly and let thicken.
2
Heat large cast iron skillet over very high heat until it is beyond the smoking stage. Combine seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl. Rub mix into chicken on both sides and coat well. Sear on both sides until almost done (may leave center a little pink - it'll cook in sauce). Cut up chicken across grain and add to hot sauce along with green onions. Stir until done (15-20 minutes).
3
Serving suggestion: Serve over curly pasta that is buttered and mixed with Parmesan cheese. Top with more green onions, diced fresh tomatoes and diced black olives.
