Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. In a large baking dish, toss with a generous drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, stirring halfway, 20 to 25 min., until browned and tender.

Mise en place
Cut the broccoli head into bite-size florets; peel and thinly slice the stem into rounds, discarding the bottom inch. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Thinly slice the chives crosswise. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel and cut into bite-size pieces; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P.

Cook the chicken & vegetables
In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Cook the chicken, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 min., until beginning to brown. Add the mushrooms and broccoli. Sauté, 5 to 7 min., until the vegetables have softened and the chicken* is cooked through. Transfer to the baking dish and set aside. Reserve the pan.

Make the béchamel sauce
In the same pan, heat 3 tbsp butter on medium. Cook the flour, stirring constantly, 30 sec. to 1 min., until a paste forms. Slowly whisk in the milk, 1 ½ cups water and the demi-glace until no lumps remain. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer and cook, 2 to 3 min., until thickened; season with the remaining spices and S&P.

Finish & serve
Switch the oven to broil. Pour the béchamel sauce into the baking dish; stir well. Top with the cheese. Broil, 3 to 4 min., until golden brown and bubbly. Divide the bake between your plates. Garnish with the chives. Bon appétit!
