Busy Day Cashew Chicken

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon instant chicken soup base (I use Jamison)
3 cups whole milk
3 scallions, sliced diagonally
1/2 cup cashews
Breaded chicken patties, strips, or nuggets to feed 4

Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan. Add flour, and stir over medium heat for one minutes until well combined. Add cayenne pepper, chicken soup base, and milk, stirring constantly until thickened and smooth. Add more or less cayenne pepper depending upon your tastes. Meanwhile, prepare chicken according to package directions. When chicken is ready, ladle sauce over the top and sprinkle with scallions and cashews. Serve immediately.
