This is deeeelicious! I made this for PAC 9/06. I'm not sure what 10 chicken pieces means; I used 4 large skinless, boneless breast halves. All was wonderful until I aded the water. I thought the sauce was TOO watery. But it was still VERY delicious. We allll loved this - even THE PICKY ONE. Thank you PAC adopted daughter for posting!
