       fresh parsley, 1 bay leaf, 6 whole black peppercorns, 1/2 tsp dried
       whole thyme, all enclosed in a double layer of cheesecloth and tied

       minutes or until chicken is done.  Remove chicken and Bouquet Garni
       from broth, reserving 2 cups broth.  Discard Bouquet Garni.  Chill
       reserved broth, and skim congealed fat from surface.  Bone and slice
       chicken; set aside.

       broccoli spears crosswise in a 13x9x2 baking dish.  Set aside.  Melt
       margerine in a large skillet over low heat; add flour, stirring until
       smooth.  Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Gradually add reserved
       broth; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is
       thickened and bubbly.  Remove from heat; stir in milk, sherry, salt,
       and pepper.

       2 tablespoons cheese to remaining sauce in skillet; stir until well
       blended, and pour over chicken.  Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons
       cheese, and bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until casserole is
