I ended up adding enough water to make it saucy--pretty thick sauce otherwise. I assumed it was supposed to have a "sauce". This was very quick and easy to prepare and the flavor was outstanding. Would definitely recommend others give it a try...

My DS and his girlfriend were over one Sunday not long ago and I wanted to make something easy but special, and so I chose this recipe. I figured chicken would be a good choice and am I glad I made it. I got compliments galore from the two of them with each bite. Served it with Wild Rice on the side, the sauce, which I doubled was drizzled over the top, and it made for a very tasty meal!

Thank you Sharlene for pointing that out! It is supposed to be thick, But I, like you, added water to thin slightly. I just forgot to note that on the recipe.
