I accidentally forgot to pick up chicken broth at the store, so I had to use chicken bouillon granules dissolved in water (made per box directions). Unfortunately, it was a sodium-free bouillon, and I think it wound up changing the taste. I made it pretty much exactly as written otherwise, using chicken instead of turkey, and omitting the pimientos. We really didn't like it much. I tried adding in a bit more salt, but it still tasted off. As it was, I would have given it a 3, but I'm bumping it to a 4, since it could very well have been my fault for not getting the right chicken broth. I may try this again. It was otherwise an easy and fairly quick recipe. I will update my review if/when I try again. Oh and I tripled the amount of sauce, it really needed it.

Good basic recipe. Had no asparagus, used some fresh broccoli and 12 oz bag of frozen stir fry veggies. I doubled the sauce and it could use even more. Otherwise, made pretty much as written. Don't forget the lemon juice as I did. It was a little bland. It needs it and maybe onion and garlic. We enjoyed it.
