My mother and I made this tonight and it was great. I had to substitute regular onions for the first amount of green onions (I omitted the garnish) and use extra chicken broth since we had no sherry. We had to add extra water to thin the sauce. I'll be making this again and will probably double the sauce although the amount the recipe made was "enough".
