My hubby really liked this. The only reason that I did not give this 5 stars is that the sauce is quite runny. I had to let it simmer for quite some time in order to get a sauce that would stick to the chicken. This is a very easy and convenient recipe and in a push I would make this for my hubby again.


it is very good, however i cut up a small green pepper and added it. also the sauce is to thin, so i added a little corn starch to thicken it. the corn starch is what it needed!


Hubby and I really enjoyed this, having it again tonight. We have ours with rice. The sauce works better with it. Baking some garlic bread to go with it. I would recommend it. I do think I simmered it a little longer as well.
