      This recipe was very good. Make sure to use broth and not bouillon or it can be too salty. We're going to try the sauce on chicken breasts next.

      We enjoyed this dish but I too had to add a lot more lime juice than recipe called for. I also increased the garlic and I grated it to make it more flavorful. Easy to make.

      Fantastic! I've made it a few times and I keep forgetting to buy green onions for it, but it still turns out fabulous.
