    • The flavor was good but mine was still extremely runny, like water. The cream cheese didn't seem to thicken it at all. I used Neufchâtel- does that make a difference? Otherwise, do you have any suggestions for thickening the sauce? I like this by the way I've but would prefer a thicker sauce if I can keep the same flavor. Maybe reduce the amount of chicken broth?
      • Hi Andrea. We have only made this recipe using cream cheese. Not sure if Neufchatel would make that much of a difference. You could decrease the amount of liquid and see if that helps thicken it up. You could always add in a little cornstarch and that would not effect the taste.
