Oops. I promised to review this again after trying it. It's a keeper! I get bulk chicken breasts and make freezer meals. This is in the regular rotation. I prefer it saucier so I double the sauce recipe and used about 2 tbs honey/honey sauce and 4 tbs log cabin syrup. Also using potato flour in place of the cornstarch. (I'm sensitive to corn)
