This was so delicious. Served with Saffron rice & green beans. I was so anxious to get it in my mouth that I forgot to take pictures but it was beautiful. I also did not add the cornstarch.

Very lovely dish. I halved the recipe for two of us. I didn't have to add the cornstarch at all. It was perfect as it was. Made for ZWT5.

This was really good! It reminded us a lot of a Chicken Imperial recipe we make often but it calls for Sherry instead of Champagne. Now we have 2 awesome recipes to choose from with uniquely different tastes. The cooking times were spot on and I only needed one TBSP of corn starch to thicken the sauce to our liking. Thanks so much for sharing cookiedog! Made for ZWT 2009.
