"Delicious, quick, and easy recipe that seems it took much time to prepare. I did add one tablespoon of flour mixed with a bit of water to thicken the sauce. This will be a repeat at our house!!!"

"I am not sure what I did, but this sauce was much too thin to serve with the chicken. I followed the recipe exact. I do not think I will make this again."
