The fact that this recipe is very low in fat, and is very easy to make, is just a bonus - it tastes great. The sauce is very flavorful. I was confused about the amount of broth to add, though. 2 1/4 cups is listed in the ingredients, but the text only mentions 1/2 cup of it. I used about 1 to 1 1/2 cups total to make a nice gravy, but when I opened the packets to serve, the broth was pretty runny. I think I will use less and make the gravy thicker next time. We still enjoyed it very much, and will definitely do this again.
