This sweet, fruity sauce goes very well with chicken. It's a great dish for two, but the recipe is easily adjusted to serve more.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2012

"This was a nice, quick meal. It wasn't too sweet. I would personally put the peas in 2-3 minutes later so they stay a little more crisp-tender and don't get overcooked and would use perhaps half to three quarters of the water to make it a little thicker or put in a little cornstarch mixed with water to thicken it just because I like my sauces a little thicker. We threw sliced almonds on top, which went very nicely!"

"Very easy and super tasty! The only "complaint" is that the sauce was too thin; next time I will probably omit the water but may try adding a thinkener instead."
