    This was great! I cooked my chicken in broth the night before then reheated it w/ the sauce the next day. I added broccoli & sugar snap peas and served it all over brown rice. I did double the sauce but I ended up w/more than 4 servings due to the additions. Can't wait for leftovers tonight! - 9/9/10

    Wow! My family Loved this! I put it in the crockpot (except cornstarch and rice). I added the cornstarch 10 minutes before eating it to thicken it up a bit. Because I put it in the CP, I was able to eliminate the oil. I substituted Splenda. I served it with brown rice and steamed broccoli. - 2/26/13
