    Extremely quick and easy to make. I added about one half teaspoon of cornstarch to help thicken the sauce. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic, mushrooms or onions to the mix. Kids liked it. Husband liked it. I liked it but thought it could be even better with a little extra spices. Served it with angel hair pasta tossed with butter and pepper, french bread as suggested, steamed mixed vegetables and a fresh tossed salad. I will definately make this dish again.  -  04 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is an excellent and easy recipe. I added a cup of sliced fresh mushrooms which made it even better. Yummy!!!!  -  20 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I had to give this four stars for the original recipe.. BUT After taking the advice of some of the reviewers and adding garlic, seasoned salt and Mrs.Dash to the chicken while it cooked... YUMMY!!!!! I will make this again with those changes. Make sure you buy crusty bread to dip in the sauce.  -  06 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
