I needed a quick chicken dish tonight and found this. What a good find it was, DH loved it and is still bemoaning the fact that he ate everything left in the pan and he doesn't have any for lunch tomorrow, lol. I mixed the cornstarch with milk as thats how my mom did it. I think that this recipe has been feeding people for a very long time :D. Thanks much for sharing.
