Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 1/3 cup Swanson’s 100% Natural 99% FF, no msg Chicken Broth
    1/4 cup Lemon Juice
    1/4 cup Smart Balance Buttery Spread
    2 cloves Garlic
    1/4 tsp Pepper, black
    2 Tbsp Corn Starch

Directions

1. In a small pan mix chicken broth, lemon juice, Smart Balance, garlic and black pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes then remove from heat.
2. In separate, heat resistant, bowl mix corn starch with 1/2 cup warm liquid mixture, a little at a time. Mix until smooth and consistent. Slowly pour corn starch mixture back into the sauce pan while whisking mixture. Watch thickness and add only enough corn starch mixture to achieve the thickness you want.
If sauce is too lumpy strain with a mesh wire strainer then re-whisk. Sometimes it helps to strain and whisk multiple times to get a good consistent sauce.

For an extra Lemony taste add 1/4 cup extra lemon juice; or add 2 Tbsp white wine for a more sophisticated taste.

Warm and serve over entree or vegetables.
Makes approximately 12 to 14-2 Tbsp servings.
