If you're looking for a recipe thats quick, easy and very tasty, this is it! Since I had leftover veggies from another day, I sauteed some chopped shallots with the chicken but excluded the carrrots & green onions at the end. I divided the quantities in half but made no changes to the timing when cooking for 2 people. It was perfect! I found the amount of sauce to be good for us but I did thicken it while I was plating the veggies. Thanks for another winner Gerry!

This was absolutely wonderful!!! After reading other reviews I doubled the sauce, as if it was as good as others had said I did not want to wish we had more. It definitely is a yummy sauce and I am sooo glad I did make the extra. I also added some chili flakes right at the end just to give some spice to the sweetness. I did taste it before doing this and it gorgeous without, this was just for our personal taste we like a little spice, when it is a sweet sauce. It is so very quick and easy to make, with such a wonderful end result. This will become one of our favourites, a great post Gerry.

This was excellent. I used a good red wine instead of sherry, and no green onions (didn't have any), otherwise followed recipe as is. The sauce cooked down to a wonderful glaze, and the carrots soaked up the flavor of the sauce and were delicious. Am definitely making this a regular.
