Super easy and fast to make. I made as directed, but next time I will modify the directions a bit so it's easier to prepare the sauce and I don't have to worry about possibly over cooking the chicken while the sauce is being prepared. I would: Saute the onions first, adding the chicken when the onions are about halfway cooked. Remove the chicken and onions to a bowl and keep warm with the steamed broccoli. Prepare the sauce and pour over the chicken mixture. Like other reviewers, I thought the sauce wasn't thick enough. Next time, I'll add some cornstarch. That will add a small amount of carbs, but DH would rather had a thicker sauce and sacrifice 1 gram of carbs per serving. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was an awesome tasting dish complimented with a side salad with Ranch dressing.

After reading the other reviews, I had extra cheese handy in case it seemed runnier than I'd like, and I did use nearly a cup more. It was delicious, and my DH ate two helpings plus rice (no low-carbing there!).
