Haylee’s Note:
I really liked this recipe. I got it from Cherie Horsley who put it in our ward cook book. I did less chicken (because you don’t need 8 breasts for 2 people), but I still the same amount of sauce. I thought it was really good. I also made an extra lemon sauce for the rice. I pretty much used the same sauce but I added chicken broth and cornstarch. Enjoy!
