    Very good flavor, quick and easy. Needs an adjustment in the quantity of chicken broth or the thickener – cornstarch. There is either too much broth or too little cornstarch which results in a very thin sauce. The quantity of sauce is fairly large if the full amount of broth is used. Less liquid would intensify the flavor. I will definitely make this again.
