  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 3 cups frozen broccoli florets thawed

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
