  • Mix together the corn flour and cold water.
  • Add the corn flour and water mixture to the pan and stir for about 30 seconds until combined. Then add the chicken stock to the skillet and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Turn down to simmer and cook stirring so the sauce thickens for about 8 - 10 minutes.

Notes

Suggested serving with rice. I prefer wholegrain rice as it’s healthier and more filling, but the choice is yours. Nutrition label does not include the rice.
