Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

    In a large saucepan melt butter and stir in minced garlic. Cook over medium high heat for 30 seconds. Pour in flour, garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper, whisk to combine. Add in cooking wine and chicken stock and continue to whisk until sauce begins to boil and thicken.

        Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish and top with additional cheddar cheese. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
