My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this chicken dish. I added salt and pepper to the sauce but that was the only alteration/addition I made. The ingredients in the sauce were well proportioned. Had a great thick and chunky texture which we really liked. This is something I would definitely serve when we have company. Thanks for the creation and good luck in the contest.
