I see what the problem is ... I filtered High Protein and Vegan ... thinking it would be "and" not "or" ... My bad! Sorry ... disregard the previous question. Thanks! Love the recipes by the way!!

Not sure why this recipe comes up using the Vegan filter??
I apologize if you have reached this recipe through the vegan filter on our website, if looking to make this recipe vegan you may substitute the chicken stock for vegetable stock or broth and omit the chicken breast completely. This sauce may be used over any protein of your choice, or simply as a dipping sauce.
