No glorious butter in this dish, but it was good nonetheless.

Looks really good, Lee! With the lemon juice, garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes, it should be very tasty, even without the butter.

This looks great Lee! I'll definitely be trying this one. Could you move it to the WW recipes forum so I'll be able to find it in the near future?

Oops, that's where I meant to post it, Mama. Done, thanks!

Karen, the chicken broth, wine and corn starch made a nice sauce for the garlic. But, you lucky duck, if you can eat whatever you want, definitely go with BUTTER!!
