    Really good but the sauce never thickened up for me. I want to make again with some adjustments. First I will only use 1/4 cup of chicken broth and use a chunkier salsa with medium heat for a little kick. It might be a good idea to make a corn starch slurry to add when sauteing to thicken sauce after chicken has cooked. Wait until the sauce is a little cooler before adding greek yogurt or it will curdle. Great taste though!
