      This recipe is delicious! My family has requested this once a week 🙂
      I used chicken breast instead of thighs – just a personal preference. I also broiled it for about 5 minutes to brown the topping. Instead of tapioca starch I used potato starch as that’s what I had on hand. I also doubled it and made it in a 9 x 13 glass dish – we had enough for leftovers for the 4 of us.
      Thanks for the recipe – look forward to making it again!

        Thank you, and the potato starch is an excelent idea. I have used arrowroot powder before and it works nicely as well. Enjoy!
