  1. I made this a couple of days ago. I’m not sure what I did to it, but it wasn’t as pretty as yours, and it didn’t thicken up much. But it made the house smell wonderful, and it was absolutely delicious! The first day we served it over a wild rice medley and it was a little soupy, but tasted great! The second day we served it over broccoli, and we loved it that way, too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

  2. This is my first try at gluten free cooking. If I put this over rice pasta, will the leftovers be ok for a day or two?

    1. Hi Kathie,

      You can certainly add the chicken and sauce to rice pasta in advance. However, rice pasta tends to absorb liquid, making it a dry when reheating. I suggest adding the chicken and sauce right before serving. If you must mix it and refrigerate it for a couple of days, make extra sauce.

      Enjoy and good luck with your gluten free cooking.
