Do you use black or green olives?

Just making this for dinner tonight and realized there is an error in the recipe. When making it say to mix butter and flour then add chicken broth and milk. There is no milk in the ingredients. What milk? How much milk?

You do not need to add milk to this recipe. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Our office liked this one.
