This was a super yummy recipe! The only reason I gave it four stars was b/c of how SUPER thick the sauce was! I added an extra cup of water and it was still thick but much better than it would have been if I hadn't of added it. I seasoned my chicken with a little bit of salt and pepper and sauteed with fresh garlic and shallots. It was a recipe that outside our normal comfort "taste zone" but I got a yes on whether or not it was a keeper from my boys. It was also very easy and quick to make. Thanks for posting!!
