Excellent dish. Forgot about it but just found the torn and splattered recipe card in my box. I don't remember where I got it from originally but it is a quick preparation and it's good!

This is very good! I wanted to make sure I had a lot of sauce so I used chicken broth and added the juice of a whole lemon and a little extra sherry :) along with some cornstarch....wonderful!! Thanks for sharing! Michelle
